With this dish I lemon zest instant of lime and curry powder instean of cumin, and WOOOOW! I served it with homemade refried beans and spanish rice, and that also just blew the roof off the house. This dinner tasted straight from a restruant. What a wonderful dish NovaLee. Thank you so much for posting this. I will be making it again.
