Very nice! Fresh and zesty, the sauce was lovely. It was so quick to make too. We don't get corn syrup here so I used 2 dessert spoons of sugar instead, I think it would have been even better with honey, but I had none on hand. Next time I think I'll use two cloves of garlic because I just love garlic. My toddler ate it enthusiatically, but I only gave it four stars instead of 5 because my husband said it was just 'okay'. Thank you very much for this recipe, I will be adding it to my regular weekday menu.
