Some interesting flavours and the recipe is written well. Congratulations! Maybe you could adapt this so recipe so it's a full meal with the rice as part of the ingredients list. Then you could do something more interesting with it. One thing I think this recipe lacks is vegetables. You say "Serve with plain boiled or steamed rice" but that would not support a balanced diet - this is something you should consider next time designing a recipe. It's is very original though.
