Rating: 5 out of 5.

I combined parts of different recipes and experimented with what to add to this dish. Peanuts would make a nice alternative to the walnuts, and sesame seeds would also add a nice flavor.

The peels can be a little overwhelming, you can pulse them in a food processors to chop the pieces up a bit more.
