Great recipie although 3 big garlic cloves makes this dish extremly garlicky! Next time i'd use 1 or 2 max! Overall really good x

It was good, i added a bit of smoked bacon to it. But i think that there needs to be a bit of a sauce with this...would have been amazing with some kind of tomato sauce...

I love this recipe. It's really quick and easy but I added a couple of courgette and a bit of lemon grass to make the lemon taste stronger. A red pepper instead of a chilli makes it less fiddily to make.
