    Great recipe. Quick, simple, and really flavourful. Added a bunch of chopped garlic, poured it over chicken breasts, and baked it, covered, for about 25 mins.  -  16 Sep 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Very tasty! I didn't have real lemon juice so I used "Reallemon" substitute and it still tasted great. I had the sauce over salmon grilled on my George Foreman grill. Very good and also healthy!  -  08 Nov 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Maybe it was just us but neither my son nor I cared much for this sauce. I thought it was too olive oily and needed a lot more lemon and spices, but truthfully I don't think I will attempt making this again even with adjustments. I tried this with salmon patties maybe I just paired it with the wrong type fish since it has such high ratings?  -  25 Feb 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
