I scaled this back for 3 serves and the DM, the DS and myself very much enjoyed. I did tone down a little as the DM is not big on spicy so used a 1/2 a small birdseye chilli deseeded and used parsley instead of cilantro/coriander. Thank you Kitchen Witch Steph, made for Name that Ingredient tag game.
