    This was good but would have been better with a few alterations. Mainly, I wouldn't have baked the rice with the fish. My rice was cooked and when I put it in with the fish it ended up getting rather crispy in the oven. I would mix the rice and heat it up on the stove to mix in the flavors and then serve the fish on top.  -  20 Feb 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    We love this so much because it is so simple and taste. I did not have coriander seed so I did not use it.  -  10 Aug 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was a really great way to serve salmon. I also cooked the rice mixture seperately to the salmon and cooled it as a salad type side dish, as well as adding raisins. The salmon just melted in my mouth and I enjoyed the fresh flavour of the mango and cilantro.  -  14 Mar 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
