The taste was really good, but with the full serrano pepper and half the seeds was WAY TOO SPICY. I really like hot and spicy food, as does my hubby, but this burned our mouths.

Traditional Indian cuisine provides the theme for this speedy menu. A fiery sauce accompanies fish that's coated in a fragrant spice blend.
