A similar recipe was emailed to me and I made several changes to create this spicy dish.

I made this for a small dinner party I was having and the only regret was ... I didnt make enough. My guests were looking for seconds. The only minor change I made was adding a little bit of coconut milk (2 Tbs) with the lime juice at the end. Highly recommended!!!
