I have not tried this. I was told that if I did it would make a fish eater out of me!! Don't know why but I just don't care for fish. Hope someone out there will try it and let me know if they liked it!!

Very Nice. I didn't have peanut oil so used sesame oil. I also toasted some raw sesame seeds and sprinkled them on top as a garnish since I didn't have the cilantro.
