Amazing I replace the jalapeño with red chilli so not to spicy but overall 5 stars

This is a firm family favourite in our house. I substitute the jalapeno pepper with green pepper so it's not too spicy for the kids and they love it.

This is a good recipe to try. There is a good blend of spices used here which work very well together. However, the *star* of the show (the fillets) left me disappointed. If you don't like the taste of Quorn fillets, this marinade won't do anything to mask or change that flavour. One good surprise from this was the rice; It tasted great with some of the marinade, so much so that I'll make it into a regular addition!
