    I made this tonite for my son in law, there were a couple of changes, nothing to write home to mama about but I did decrease the cayenne by half. I did add back a bit of flavor by adding 1/2 teaspoon cumin. As for the lemon, the only thing I did was make that into more of a pan sauce, I drained the remaining oil out of the pan but left those little brown bits, then I deglazed the pan with the juice of a whole lemon, once all the brown bits were scraped up and dissolved into the lemon juice I added a 1 tablespoon cold butter to add richness. I don't eat seafood and cannot even taste it so I have to just guesstimate on the flavor. I also used large mouth bass cause we had it on hand. My son in law raved about it, said it was awesome and worth every bite. So its a keeper!! Thank you, glad I made a much bigger amount and bottle and labeled it so son in law can have it anytime.
