It's really good but a lot of avocado. I used half the recommended amount and I put it over pasta and it was great.

This is really good. I made it as a side dish served next to Lemon Garlic Talapia. I served it over fresh green beans and it was good, a little thicker then i thought it would be. I was expecting more of a sauce but it was still good!

Original and refreshing way to make butterfly shrimp! Go easy on the lemon and add a bit of white wine to make a reduction in the pan. Highly recommended.
