    Sarah Rhiannon's Note:

    This recipe is adapted from one I saw in a magazine a few years ago (unfortunately can't remember which magazine). I made a few changes as I like lots of sauce for the dish. To reduce the amount of sauce, just halve the amount of oranges and butter. It is a really easy recipe and goes well with couscous or rice.
