I cooked this for the first time, not exactly to recipe, but will definitely cook it again. I blended the soup before adding the coconut milk and lime zest/juice and only added 270 ml of coconut milk. I thought the potato and leek flavour got a bit lost by the lime and coconut milk, but it was beautifully creamy and I did enjoy the lime, but perhaps just one next time...

I took advice from the last two contributors and edited the recipe! Thanks for you input, very helpful.
