I made this one last night-- I was really excited for a chance to use lemongrass in a recipe! But I was disappointed for a couple reasons. 1, the recipe didn't tell me how to use lemongrass (I'm a novice) 2, I found the flavorings were way too much for my palate. It all sounded great and looked amazing, but when it came time to eat it I was left disappointed and with a bad aftertaste. I did omit the cilantro, btw.
