This is a fantastic recipe. I've tried it twice now and it only gets better. Even my gourmet cooking friends were impressed and wanted a copy of the recipe. BTW, I added a lot more butter ... not as low calorie but really delicious.

I also substituted lemon instead of lime and it tasted great! To make it agree with the South Beach diet, we used wheat flour instead of A.P.
