    Made it more kid friendly. Swap the sherry for the juice from the orange.  -  10 Nov 2010


    Top notch! I added red pepper and baby corn to bulk it out which was very tasty.  -  29 Dec 2009


    This is so popular, it has become a regular dish with my family. I add mushrooms, onion and baby sweetcorn to fill us up and sometimes replace the sherry with the juice from the orange, esp if cooking for the children!  -  10 Nov 2010
