    Wow- what an amazing combination of flavors! Simple and quick- I would recommend going easy on the jalapeno unless you really want the sauce hot.

    Surprisingly good and could really be made with most types of fish. My guests raved about it!

    This is such an odd mixture of ingredients. I actually tasted the cilantro-curry sauce on its own and thought it was gross. However, once I added it to the fish with the coconut it tasted really good. A nice surprise!

    One of my favorite fish recipes! Used tilapia as suggested as a substitute and added more of the topping on the finished fish than in the recipe because it looked so yummy. It turned out fantastic. Quick, easy, very tasty! Will definitely make this again and again.

    Yummy! Easy! Quick! Presentation and taste make this dish worthy of special occasions w/ guests, special occasions w/ a special someone, and as a treat for yourself. Because I like 'heat', the only adjustment I made was to not seed the jalapeño pepper. I'm looking forward to dining on this dish again and again. Thank you, Alyson Moreland Haynes, for this recipe!

    Loved this, but made a few changes because of available ingredients. I had no lemon, so used lime juice. Also had no flaked coconut, so substituted coconut milk for EVOO and topped with toasted, slivered almonds. The Tilapia we had on hand isn't my favorite fish, but this sauce made it something special!

    Great Recipe! I substituted the cilantro for dried parsley and the flounder for tilapia. Everything still tasted great. I would probably add more coconut next time to make it a bit sweeter.

    I used tilapia because flounder was not available; everything else was the same as the recipe. I thought this was very tasty - it was fresh, flavorful (especially the cilantro), a little spicy (jalapeno), and a little sweet (coconut). Best of all, it was quick and easy to make.

    The topping was "unique" but I thought it overpowered the flounder. Will definitely not make again.

    This was a great recipe! So many great flavors working so wonderfully together! Sweet, spicy, tangy. We loved it. Makes a lovely summer dinner. Step-by-step photos on my blog: http://me-myself-and-pie.blogspot.com/2010/03/tilapia-with-cilantro-curry-sauce.html

    Perfect with some coconut rice for any occasion. Gluten free! I made only two fillets but the amount of sauce prescribed here, without jalapeno peppers, and it was awesome.

    Loved this! The flavors are fantastic together. My fish broke up on me, but we actually liked it in chunks. http://onecoupleskitchen.blogspot.com/2010/07/flounder-with-cilantro-curry-topping.html

    I made the sauce and tasted it before adding the curry powder. My wife and I decided that the addition would likely ruin it, so we left it out. We both liked it quite a bit and will likely make it again. It went really well with the coconut mango rice pudding recipe from Cooking Light served as a side dish. We used frozen Trader Joe's cubed mango and it made a great and easy accompaniment to the meal.
