    This was delicious. I served it with a few cherry tomatoes, a little cucumber, and mixed salad with oil and vinegar.

    is the 386 calories amount showed in the nutrition tab based on the entire meal or per 100g?

    when the recipe is calculated from one person to 4 ppl the nutrition values seem to stay the same, thats confusing.

    This is so good. Next time will make with Langostino's. Can get bags at Aldi's. I cant wait. Can make gigger ammounts and keep in the frig. This is a keeper.
