"This recipe is fantastic! I doubled the recipe and only increased the almonds. It was simple and DELICIOUS. My husband and I devoured it. Served it on top of brown and wild rice, asparagus and a spinach salad. Thanks for sharing the recipe."

"This is sooooo good. It is also easy to make. It has a "good" resataurant mix of flavors, but not the cost. I used Tilapia."
