Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I substituted 3 tilapia filets for the cod and doubled the scallions. It turned out awesome!

I made this dish today and it came out very good. Only I added a splash of white cooking wine. My kids and myself loved it. Next time I may try cutting up sea scallops or add some shrimp (the ones I cook myself) just to add a spin on it.

This is a real hit with family and friends. It is easy and tasty.

just finished dinner and this was very good...and so easy...will do it again...
