    Sue Lau's Note:

    Makes a great spicy dish to serve over rice or pasta. Can explode with spice if you like it, but adjust the heat to your taste. So easy and quick to prepare, and tastes like you put so much more effort into it.

      Delicious, Sue! I doubled the sauce and probably added more green onion and parsley than called for. I didn't make this super spicy as I was serving with Chardonnay. It didn't get as thick as I would like, so I added some parmesan cheese and instead of using lemon juice, I used about a fourth cup of white wine. Very simple, very good...another keeper!
