Excellent recipe; a little different and very tasty. It wasn't overly spicy (could have used more perhaps), but the mixture of spices, herb and lime juice was a nice combination. I made a couple low-fat adjustments with lite tofu (extra firm) and a mix of part skim mozzarella and low-fat mexican cheese mix (as that was what I had in the fridge). I recommend using a non-stick frying pan. Also I think here in the U.S. coriander is more commonly referred to as cilantro. Fortunately I remembered this while I was unsuccessfully looking for fresh coriander! Thanks very much Sueie for this exceptional recipe!
