  • Incredible!

    Yummy lemony goodness! The whole fam loved it. I threw in a couple extra cloves of garlic and the picture looks like it has some lemon zest so I went ahead and threw some in. I served it with Lemon-Asparagus pasta from health.com and a simple salad. Tastes better than butter filled scampi! - 9/13/14
