READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by English_Rose

This is a very spicy dish, if you prefer a milder taste, simply halve the quantities of coating. you can also serve this into warmed flatbreads or tortilla wraps.

Top Review by Parsley

Spicy, indeed, yet not intolerable. You could always decrease the amount of spices the first time you make this. The flavor was excellent. I added some minced garlic, but otherwise stuck to the recipe. I served this over rice. This would go wonderfully with chinese noodles, too. Thanx for sharing!
