      There were 6 of us, so doubled the recipe, (none left,though). They were really good, using lamb fillet. Apart from marinading the were quick and easy to make and I added a mint-jelly dipper (sacrilege), but would cut down a little on garlic and cilantro next time.

      i made these tonight and they were basically inedible. i thought that i must have made a mistake. After double checking, i learn that i didn't. They tasted like chorizo which wouldn't have been bad had it not been for the texture. It was horribly eating sand.

      Excellent!!!! What a wonderful appetizer. I didn't have any hot paprika so used what I had on hand (sweet) and added a heaped teaspoon of minced red chillies. Cooked these on the barbecue for approximately fifteen minutes and they were perfect. Thanks for a great recipe.
