I really enjoyed this recipe. You need to let it get cold for the flavors to meld. This has a little kick to it that we enjoyed. Followed your advice and served it with a salad and bread and rice. Made for ZWT5.

This was really simple to make with lovely flavors. I added some orange zest and a few small chunks of orange to the dish. It would also be great with shrimp.
