I've made this recipe many times, exactly as written, for my family. They LOVE it! It's fast, easy and delicious. Sometimes (when I'm feeling spicy) I add red pepper flakes ... it adds a bit of heat. Thanks for the recipe!

I am in Japan so I had to make a few modifications such as using white rice and I cut the recipe in half as well. I am not the biggest fish fan but I have a lot of shrimp and this was a great way to use it while enjoying eating it! I can see why it is one of your son's favorite foods! :)
