Not for us. Really didn’t like the smoky taste. Kids hated it. Overall bland and very disappointing

Adrian - Dec 09, 2018

Super easy to make! I added hot chilli powder as this isn’t the spiciest of dishes but the smokiness of the flavour is gorgeous

Beauleiu - Dec 08, 2018


Rennie - Dec 05, 2018

Excellent smokey taste, loved it!!!

Helen - Dec 02, 2018


Danny - Dec 01, 2018

Not very spicy, needed a bit of something to liven it up

Laura - Nov 29, 2018

Really tasty meal. I followed some reviewers advice & added kidney beans rather than baked, & also added more chilli powder. I also recommend adding grated cheddar cheese to the finished fish and having a big dollop of sour cream on the side, as both flavours added a lovely depth to the dish. Boiling the rice in the beef stock was another lovely touch.

Melissa - Nov 27, 2018

Not very nice at all.

Beauleiu - Nov 25, 2018

mohit - Nov 14, 2018

Added kidney beans instead of baked beans and add more chilli to make it spicier. Loved it. Ordering it again. Rice was cooked perfectly. It’s all about timing and right amount of water.
