I tried this recipe twice. First time I left out lemon zest cause I wasn't sure about that. It was good but too hot, so I left out the red peppers and just kept them on the table for people to use if desired. BUT, I also used the lemon zest this time and it made the sauce very bitter. I had to dilute with more clam juice and wine. I think this would be a great recipe without the zest and red peppers (or much less of them).
This recipe was delicious and easy to make. I Did Not use anchovies just cause I am not too keen on the flavor but followed everything else. I served it with a small side salad and some Italian bread.
This was too HOT for our taste even though we are spicy food eaters- but the recipe overall is very good. Next time I will probably use 1/4 teaspoon of red pepper. I also omitted the anchovies and added capers for saltiness. Will make this again- great dinner!
I am so glad to find this here! It is a wonderful recipe and delicious. Made it as written and served with a green salad and some french bread.
