I loved the recipe! It was a wonderful dish that everyone enjoyed. The only things I changed was using orange peel instea of lemon and I didn't have lemon pepper, so I used lime pepper. Also, I just used frozen whole green beans and toasted and chopped a cup of almonds. This worked great. The taste was light with a hint of citrus, a welcome change from the usual. Thanks for a lovely recipe.
