    Excellent meal. I did this for two and over did it with the apricotes but it was still superb. I added some chopped dates and used a Morrocan spiced couscous which added to the flavours.  -  01 Mar 2012

    Nice recipe, thanks. I reduced the apricots by half, diced them and added 1/2 tsp of smoked paprika and 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper just after putting the apricots in. Very nice.  -  05 Jun 2013  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
