I wanted to give 4 stars, but I don't know about the whole "worthy of a special occasion" I mean- it was a Thursday night and all, but that's about all that was special about the occasion on which this was made. This recipe makes plain old rice actually quite yummy, although I routinely omit the peas since we're not exactly peas kind of people. Will definitely make again with the Spicy Louisiana Tilapia Fillets: http://wifeyknifey.blogspot.com/2011/09/spicy-louisiana-tilapia-fillets-with.html
Hoppin' John-Style Rice
