Great recipe! I substituted light olive oil for some of the butter and added a dash of cayenne pepper. Please double-check the nutritional information - 1/3 cup butter for six servings is likely more than a trace of fat and 0 cholesterol.

I really love this recipe and make it often. It's very tasty, and the lemon juice adds some zing.
