    Altered ingredient amounts. I didn't add the linguine and the cakes went together very well. The sauce added lots of extra flavour.  -  01 Sep 2010


    Made it healthier. I added a little fresh chopped garlic and extra coriander to the cakes, otherwise I thought they were a little bland. I also substituted low-fat sour cream for the mayonnaise and that worked very well!  -  29 Sep 2008


    Altered ingredient amounts. The consistency, texture and flavour come through on this one. It's great. Although, I like the lime sauce a little less strong so I add less lime juice.  -  29 Sep 2008
