  • “This is great!It is so simple and tasty.I used a little less coconut cream than the recipe.I just ate it with chicken and rice and it was lovely.I can imagine doing many different things to vary it…..limes, coconut milk, adding spices, for example red pepper flakes or cinnamon, depending on what I want to serve it with.Maybe I need to have a luau now.”
