      I can't believe no one has tried this yet..We had this on New Years Day. I know, not very traditional but I'm glad we did. This was delicious! I will save this recipe for Summer meals though because it is so light and refreshing. I used the shrimp broth instead of the clam juice. I forgot to add the lime juice at the end of cooking, so we just squeezed it on our individual servings. Served it over rice.This is a good one to include in a Mexican themed meal. But it actually only served 2..We went back for seconds!

      Yummm, over white rice, and looks pretty too! Added 1/2 a red pepper. Don't be afraid to add water to get the sauce the consistancy that you want.
