    I made this last night. Found the recipe in The Complete Stir-Fry Cookbook. Had my reservations about it (because of the lack of ingrediants that go with all that lemon but it was fantastic!<br/><br/>I used the lemon zest of 1 whole lemon, the juice of two and 1 1/2 tbs of butter with about 1 1/2 tbs of olive oil/peanut oil combined. Like the review below, my husband wanted garlic too but I thought it was great just as.

    Good fresh taste, but needed a little something -perhaps just a little garlic.
