Wonderful!!! The flavors go so well together and it is so simple and quick to throw together. I first made this last month. And it has become a requested dinner EVERY WEEK in our house. We really love the sauce over jasmine rice. I usually serve either brussel sprouts or broccoli with this, and use the sauce as a topping for the veggies. Thanks a million for a new family fave!

Excellent dish. Made it for supper last night just as the recipe states. Next time I will reduce the cayenne just a tad, it was a little hot for my liking, however, RJ didn't even feel the hot, as usual. Recipe was quick, easy and on the table in no time. Will be a keeper for us. Thanks for sharing peachez. Tweeky, a.k.a. Judi

This is not a recipe I will make again. The flavor was too acidic and the sauce never thickened. Maybe something I did wrong??
