I made this hot for dinner and it went down REALLY well. The boys in the family not only ate but enjoyed it and suggested I do it again.

I have made this several times for picnics and barbecues and it is always very popular. It is especially nice to have alongside more starchy salads like potato and pasta salads - it is light but very tasty.

Amazing.
I love cooked mushrooms so I heated them in butter for a few minutes, and used lime instead of lemon as I prefer lime - everything else I kept the same. The flavours in this recipe are very exciting, it's incredibly quick and simple, very healthy (maybe minus the butter I used!!). A must try!
