    I made this recipe exactly as instructed. My family of four decided that the lime flavours are too strong and even bitter. Next time I make this, I will cut way back on the lime zest, and add more orange juice. Hubby said he would have liked more sauce that he could put over the rice I served alongside. Maybe I'll add some crushed pineapple, honey and a sprinkle of toasted coconut before serving to create a sweeter version. This recipe definetly needs some experimenting before you serve it to guests. Nice light recipe, however; and easy to throw together.  -  29 Sep 2008


    Wow, this didn't turn out well at all--it was very, very strong. Neither my husband or I were able to eat it. To try this recipe, I would recommend using far less garlic.  -  29 Sep 2008


    I liked this allot. I reduced the marinade on the stove top and used it as a sauce.  -  29 Sep 2008
