Easy to make, very tasty - but ease up on the lemon juice. It only needs half of what the recipe says.

Maybe I squeezed too vigorously, but I found the juice of 2 lemons to be far too overpowering for this dish. I tried to remedy this with butter and seasoning but wasn't impressed, sorry :(

I love this recipe. It's easy to make.. what i love the most is that the remaining ingredients are added fresh once the potatoes are cooked.. Simplicity and taste!
