    the garlic and lemon juice amount may be adjusted to taste, if you like some heat add in crushed red chili flakes and saute with the garlic :)

      I rarely give one of your recipes a less than stellar rating, Kitten, so it's a sad moment for me to say that this just didn't do it for us. I don't know if I had a particularly bitter lemon but it completely overpowered this dish, although we love lemon in general. It also had kind of an odd aftertaste that kept either of us from finishing our servings. I may tweak this and try again, because I really like the idea, but this one just wasn't for us.
