Very good, we enjoyed this! It was just a tiny bit too salty. I added fresh red pepper strips, and garnished with parsley. Thanks for posting!

Delightful! Simple and authentic. I served this to guests and got rave reviews. I like using green onions instead of the regular onions because they add gorgeous color contrast.
