- Mel's notes: 8/26/06 - It is delicious! The original recipe called for 1/4 tsp cayenne and that was too much. Also, it needed more cumin, so I added another 1/2 tsp and another tsp of salt. I used some lemon slices and parsley for a garnish with the oil drizzled on top and it was beautiful as well as delicious.
