I made this and it smelled delicious but the taste was VERY BITTER. Something must be wrong with the measurements in this recipe, and I can't figure out whether it is too much cilantro, onion or lime juice. I would love clarification on whether "1/3 cup minced, fresh cilantro" should have been "1/3 cup fresh cilantro, minced"- that may have made the difference. EDITORS, please help!! There have been 2.3K shares, and I can't find one comment from anyone who followed the recipe.
