      DH and I were very impressed with this dish! I think the lemon zest really made it outstanding, I used a microplane :-) This dish was easy to make and good for you too. DH and I are low carbing it, so we skipped the rice and did not feel cheated at all, very satisfying

      Great stuff. My husband and son enjoyed it too. I doubled the marinade/sauce ingredients. Also, used about 1 lb each asparagus and carrots. Terrific over steamed white rice. Thanks!

      To be honest I did not eat a single bite of this recipe but I am still giving it 5 stars because every person who did eat it, absolutely loved it. I also doubled the sauce. I didn't have any green onions so I just used half of an onion. I used 2 carrots also for more veggie content. I am a nanny and the family I made this for gave all rave reviews. The Mom actually called me late at night to thank me and say how amazed she was at the great dinner I had left for them. My only problem was the asparagus. I had to keep the dinner warm in a bowl with a lid and by the time everyone ate, the asparagus looked overcooked and wilted. The Mom however said she did not see that as a problem and it was delicious. Thanks for a great recipe.....and for making me look good!!
