Wow what a tasty recipe! This was an absolute hit with my partner and I, easy to make and delicious. The only thing we didn't do was put the chillis in, instead using a teaspoon full of dried (which made it spicy enough for us. We served it with blanched Chinese broccoli drizzled with oyster sauce and it was the best meal we've had in ages.
