Very delicious recipe. <br/>I used Cayenne pepper instead of the ground Red Pepper though, it turned out well. I'm gonna make this for my friends next week.

This was delicious, quick and simple. After working all day, I came home and had dinner ready is 10 minutes. The bright lemon and the spicky red pepper was a nice combination. I did not have green onion, so left it out. Served with green salad and a nice bold red wine.
