This Mexican-inspired dish is truly something special. The Tajin seasoning and the cilantro bring to life a delightful flavor. It is the perfect combination of spiciness and juiciness. Plus, the garlic and cumin introduce a hint of smokiness. I like to serve this dish with a side of mexican rice and some freshly made pico de gallo or guacamole.

While different to the traditional Mexican dish, it still gets the flavor of the dish right with the generous use of chilies and other herbs.
