I just came across this once again and remembered that I wanted to try it. I'm posting it so that I'll remember to do so. I do question the smoking hot oil part a bit though.

I made this for Mother's Day this weekend and it was delicious! I omitted the cilantro however. Everyone thought it was fabulous! Fish was done to perfection. The mushrooms and green onion really enhanced the flavor of the fish. Unfortunately, I missed taking photos of it as I was consumed with getting the rest of the food on the table and served. Made for Honor Thy Mother - Diabetic tag.
