    Thankyou so much for your invitation to help me lose weight the low carb way. I have just had my second back opp and weigh 100kg. It is almost midnight and tomorrow should be an exciting shopping day. I'll read everything beforehand though.

    Every chili paste I found has sugar as the first ingredient. I can't believe that is right. What chili paste are you recommending.
  3. Athena McGrath
    I enjoyed this recipe! It reheated well, too :)
  4. Rhonda
    I couldn't find any chili paste, so I just used some chipotle chili powder I had and boy, was it fantastic! What a delicious topping to the fish!

    i made this tonite with Sambal Oelek, but no parmesan. Delicious and most satisfying!

    I agree, all chilli paste / sauce etc has sugar in it, i made it anyway and tasted delightful but .......
  8. Sharon
    Look for the chili garlic sauce by Huy Fong Foods ( not their siracha) it does not have sugar. We use it all the time in Chinese cooking.
  9. Matt
    Has anyone had success with substituting another ingredient for the mayo or sour cream, or skipping it entirely? Greek yogurt, perhaps?
  10. Janice
    Can I substitute this with chicken? I don't eat seafood.

    Sometimes I find myself trying to follow a recipe to a tee without really thinking about what I would enjoy out of it. I was getting really hung up on not finding chili paste or other ingredients you just can't commonly find in your average super market, like mild chipolte paste or some thing like that. Really all you need is about 2 teaspoons of chili powder and 1 teaspoon of red pepper flakes and you are good to go. This dish is absolutely delicious and I would highly recommend it.
