    This was very tasty, though we ate it hot. It was popular with all the family.  -  08 Oct 2013


    We made this tonight. It was a hit, but the consensus was that the amount of lime was a bit overpowering (half for one person, a whole one for two, etc). I'll use less next time! pinkandothercolours - we might try it hot next time, too - thanks for the idea  -  04 Feb 2014
