    I tried this recipe and it was great! Except for the cilantro, it was the first time i ever tried fresh cilantro and i found out the hard way that it’s not my cup of tea. Can i substitute it with anything next time i make this? Or should i leave it out alltogether?
    Thank you for all your lovely recipes 🙂

    Helen – I would just leave it out altogether.
