  1. I made this last night – DELICIOUS.
    A little too spicy though – I went for the full 2 teaspoons of crushed red pepper. I’m a fan of spicy but wowwwww haha ;) I’d definitely recommend sticking to one teaspoon!

    (I ended up compensating by adding some more lemon juice)

    Plenty of leftovers too! :)

  2. Great recipe, thank you!

  3. Delicious and easy for a weeknight dinner! My Tip: We only used 1/2 teaspoon of crushed red pepper flakes and it was perfect. I would think that a full 1-2 teaspoons might be a little too much, so start out with less… you can always add more! Thanks for posting, Brittany!
