MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 17, 2011

"My family enjoyed this recipe. It was very good and the flavors all worked well together. I omitted the green onions because I didn't have them around but the next time I make this recipe I will definitely be using them to give it the added flavor, though it didn't really need it!"
