Really wonderful blend of flavors...very original. The orange and coriander really jump out at you and the currants provide a bit of sweetness. I added a red bell pepper to the mix. I'll be making this one a lot. Thanks for the recipe!

Very good. I thought it's a tad complicated as you need to zest an orange and grate ginger but the flavors all come together for a very nice dish. I didn't have coriander so I omitted it. I'll be making this again.
