    I have made and served this several time. I always get raves! Easy, delicious and a keeper! I did add more lime juice and a little more garlic.

    Wonderful! Took it to a party - gone in a flash! But I marinated it overnight and, instead of 1 teas. crushed red pepper, I used a heaping teaspoon; gave it just the right amount of 'zip'!
