Tasted fab even though does not look great.


I would use less spice mix on the meat next time

Chef's note

Most variants of this recipe call for more salt. I reduced the amount to 2 teaspoons and still found it too salty. This was very tasty but I think next time I would put less of the spice mix on the meat.
