This was wonderful! I used collards instead of the Seven Lettuces, and added a Bay leaf, but otherwise kept it the same. We served it over brown and wild rice in a bowl. Except for my daughter who doesn't like spicy things, this was a family hit. Will definately make again soon.

I added scallops and rice to this recipe, but left the seasoning the same. It was delicious and very easy to make!
