I've never taken the time to write a review and I am incredibly picky and consider myself to be a rather knowledgeable 'chef'. That said, we dine at a famous (and expensive)Italian restaurant (Paesano's) which is most notarious for their lemon/shrimp dish, which the sauce is strictly a 'secret'. I absolute believe this to be every bit (if not better), and bar far, the best lemon/cream seafood sauce I have ever tasted. It will be the ONLY one I use (great blend, but the oregano really is key and not discernable in the absence of the recipe). It is INCREDIBLY easy and the taste and blend of flavors is 5-star, bar none.
