Okay the thing about seafood is that I don’t really like it. I can eat it. I don’t even gag, but I wouldn’t say I like it. Now, I am a mother who likes to expose my children to all types of foods. They are not those kids that survive on hot dogs, bananas and KD alone. If we are eating it they are eating it. So once a month I force myself to cook seafood to enrich my children’s lives. Now this recipe I LIKED! Not kidding, I actually enjoyed eating. It was not that last thing left on my plate while I tried to sneak it into the garbage before my kids could see. And my kids liked it too. They even had seconds, not of the rice, not of the carrots, but of the fish. Amazing. So here it is. I got the recipe from Allrecipes.com too. I surf on that site a lot!
