    Rita~'s Note:

    Rice flour gives this a nice crunch. Backhousia citriodora (common names lemon myrtle, lemon scented myrtle, lemon scented ironwood) is a flowering plant in the family Myrtaceae. From subtropical rainforests of central and south-eastern Queensland, Australia, with a natural distribution from Mackay to Brisbane. Other common names are sweet verbena tree, sweet verbena myrtle, lemon scented verbena, and lemon scented backhousia.

      These are very good! The combination of the lemon myrtle, chili powder, and paprika are wonderful. I added a bit of lemon pepper as well. Really enjoyed these today for lunch. Thanks for sharing! Made for ZWT8.
