    My family and I were delighted to find that this recipe is a restaurant-quality meal. It was devoured by all 6 of us, ages 9-85. I will make this again and I would be glad to serve it to company. Excellent pairing of flavors and textures.

    My family loved this recipe. They even asked for seconds. I would probably increase the amount of red pepper sauce because it wasn't enough for the amount of rice. I will definitely be making this again.
