      I'll rate without stars since I made two changes. One is I subbed lemon for lime and second I microwaved instead of steaming on the stove. This just didn't work for me, but perhaps it was due to the changes I made.

      Super!!!!!!!!! This sauce is so good with the steamed veggies!!! I used a serrano pepper and it had great flavor with the lime, garlic, and butter!!!! I like it spicy, so next time, I might add 2 serranos because it wasn't hot. It was perfectly balanced sauce and I will definitely make this again and again!!!!!
