I have not made this yet, but can not wait to make. I have one problem, people who left comments talked about adding Saute Express squares. I live in Chilliwack BC Canada. I went on line and looked under walmart Canada, they did not carry it. I went on line and did a search for it and saw all the different ones you have. I would of loved to have all of your Saute Express Squares. Can you tell me what is equal to Saute Express Squares in BC, Canada?

I doubled the amount of fish and it was still delicious, definitely a make again! Be very careful with the cilantro - I used a third of the amount called for and it was almost overpowering. We had leftovers the next night and left out the cilantro and I think I prefer it without.
