Really and simple and flavorful recipe, will certainly make again.

Good stuff, watch the cayenne. Recipe is a touch spicy, adjust up or down depending on your taste.

I love this dish!

This dish turned out great. I used all ingredients except scallions. All who indulged was satisfied. I would make this dish again.
