    Original recipe had 1/3 cup lemon juice instead of the cup of heavy cream - rest of ingredients in the recipe the same. I made this dish and it was one of the easiest and fastest I ever made. Served with rice to absorb the juices, it was delicious.

    The original recipe in the magazine did NOT have any cream, but other than that everything else is the same! This must be a type-o.
