    JackieOhNo!'s Note:

    Victor's Cafe 52 is a reknowned Cuban restaurant that has been in Manhattan since 1963. I found this recipe in the newspaper about 20 years ago, when Cuban cuisine was quite novel to me. It was a great introduction!

      I enjoyed this dish. It's quite flavourful but I would have preferred it to be less salty. I also cut down the oil by 1/2 to make it a bit lower in fat. Made for 2009 (January) Please Review My Recipe tag game.
