    Now is the perfect time to taste. Make sure you like the balance. There are a lot of strong flavored ingredients in here so make sure none of them wants to be in the front of your taste buds alone. Balance is the key here. Maybe it needs a little more lemon juice, or maybe butter. Maybe now you feel you’d like it spicier. No problem, add more hot pepper flakes. You know where I’m going with this. That’s when you are cooking! You are the cook, this recipe is just a guideline.  Make it yours.

    Serve on a warm plate, garnish with some flat leaf Italian parsley and a side of your choice. Another delicious way to serve is with your favorite salad and a nice french baguette to mop up the sauce.
