This was too one track on flavours. I used 2 tbsp of oil, I didn't want to use 3 (the recipe in the Fish & Seafood book uses 6, serves 4 people so I halved the recipe.) I wouldn't make it again as I didn't think it was interesting enough.

I would recommend using only the zest and juice of half a lime! a whole lime makes it too tangy so you cannot taste anything else other than the lime i think this would make a really nice dish with half a lime or even a lemon instead i will be trying this again
