    Rave reviews. Needs additional lemon but great recipe.

    Good, but 1tsp of lemon juice seems like too little. I added about a Tbsp of lemon juice and about 1 tsp lemon zest and 1 seeded fresh jalapeno. The jalapeno adds a hint of heat but is not at all overpowering. I think lime juice instead of lemon would also work well and perhaps a bit of chipotle chile powder or smoked paprika, but I haven't tried those variations.
