This was delicious, i made it for lunch and so easy. Loved the lime and heat. One change i made was subbing Dar Jeerah powder for the coriander and cumin seed which i did not have. Dar Jeerah is a fabulous indian spice 2 to 1 mix of ground cumin to coriander. Makes life easy when both are called for. Oh and bc its freezing here, i made this in the skillet then added a half tablespoon of butter and a couple of tablespoons of water to the left over pan and made a little sauce with the marinade.
