I wish I'd read the comments about dryness before trying this recipe. It was far too dry even with extra water added. I don't think I'll try it again.

Hi this recipe is lovely - to solve the dryness and to add some sauce, I added some coconut cream (or you could use canned coconut milk) to it and it went down a treat with my coconut loving daughter! We also had to serve it with coconut rice!

Very tasty but I found it too dry, despite adding extra water in with the peanut butter. Served with noodles instead of rice. Think I'd use less garlic next time as it was quite strong but not sure how to solve the dryness problem..

Really lovely recipe! I added a red chillie to the marinade and half the juice of a lime too. May try without the chillie next time. My fiancé described it as "heaven". Will def make this again!
