Last night I threw together this dish and I have no idea what to call it.
It’s not a Curry even though there is curry powder in it and it isn’t Mexican even though there is both cilantro and lime in the mix.
Therefore I call it Spicy Stir Fry – even though it isn’t Asian at all.
This Stir Fry takes only 15 minutes to make, including prep – and if you don’t want it spicy, just skip the chili.
If you want the dish more “wet” you could add more lime juice or few tablespoons of either coconut-milk or low fat cream.
You can serve this dish with all kinds of flat bread, with a mango salad, in a bun or with rice, quinoa or cauliflower.
