Excellent recipe! Hands down this is a very tasty and delicious recipe. My family devoured it. I loved the part where we cut the lemon peel into strips and add towards the end, great idea. I will definately make this again. Thanks for sharing. 5 big stars.

I thought this was delicious! Very nice lemon flavor. I didn't use the mushrooms or green onions because I don't care for either of them that much. This was easy to prepare and your instructions were clear and easy to follow. Thanks for sharing this recipe!
