This recipe is amazing, quick ans easy. Can be changed, I've had it with frozen mixed seafood, chicken, even used eggnoodles instead of rice as they were in the cupboard. Great to use with meat left overs, added tomato, mushroom and spring onion....just play around with it....beautiful!!!!

Not bad, but not the most flavoursome dish. I don't eat chilli so added a bit of ginger to give it a kick.

I got rid of the mint and added fresh basil instead.
I find Basil goes with most fish dishes.
Also I diced a fillet of whiting and soaked that in the lime juice for 1/2 hour.
It worked well for me.
I may try it with more fish & Orzo instead of the noodles next time

I made this for some dinner guests and they all loved it. When they come back and ask for this dish again I think sayes it all.

I've made many dishes from this website and loved them all.
Apart from this one.
There was very little taste and a waste of time.
It all went in the bin.
Try another dish, Prawn laska is so much nicer.
