      I used halibut and used light coconut milk.....it was still delicious!!! Served it over rice, and the sauce was wonderful with the rice. I really enjoyed this fish dish!! Thanks for sharing.

      Fantastic fish dish. The flavors came together really well, and we enjoyed the freshness of the lime juice particularly.

      Wow! What a great meal last night. I wasn't sure how flavourful this would be since the ingredients are so simple, but I thought it was great. And that was without the jalapeno, which sadly I had to leave out to please little palettes. I didn't even have a full can of coconut milk, only half, and it still worked out perfectly. For fish I used tilapia. So easy, thanks Kim!! Made for ZWT5.
