Delicious! The lemon and cajun flavours worked very well together and it was much enojoyed along with a little steamed rice.
This recipe is amazing! I joined Zaar in order to give it the 5 stars it deserves! I double the sauce ingredients, except the sugar (which I leave at 1/4 cup) and the cornflour (which I make 2 1/2 tablespoons). It is a winner with everybody - spicy, tangy AND sweet!
it tastes great! the sauce is kind of like the lemon chicken sauce served in chinese restaurants. yum! will be making this again. adjust the sugar to your taste! i personally don't like the sauce too sweet. =)
