    Jostlori's Note:

    I found this great recipe on a can of Goya coconut milk (NOT coconut CREAM). I'm putting it here for safe-keeping, in case they change recipes on the can... I served this for a dinner party and got rave reviews. Enjoy!

      This is very tasty and pretty easy to make. I think it would work with tilapia also. The list of ingredients is a bit hard to follow, though, since they are out of order as per the instructions. It is easier to follow if ingredients are listed in order used. I think this could also be "jazzed up" if desired, with some curry paste or powder.
