This can also be used for fish and pork. I cut back on the red pepper due to my own taste.

PAC Spring 2008 ~ This was OK. I liked it but DH thought the lime juice gave it a bit too much tang for his taste. I must admit the leftover tasted better today and I used it in Chef by Chance's Recipe #291515.
