What a unique sauce! I would suggest a name change for this sauce as I didn’t feel lemon was the main ingredient. This has a combination of sweet & sour, plus a savory taste for a fantastic flavor which fully satisfied both differences between hubby and myself. This was easy to make and I served it over plain baked chicken breasts. The only thing I did differently was slicing the peppers instead of chopping them. I don’t think I would make this for fish as the flavor is quite rich, but I think it would be marvelous with pork or even a stir-fry. I will certainly make this again!
