    What a yummy dish. Full of color. Per my taste I doubled the turmeric, and cumin ( i love these two flavors together ).I used talapia, a little strong on the fishy taste than I would have liked with this dish. My next go round I would try the bass. Still yummy either way, and it's even better the next day.
    I've cooked/tasted this recipe!
