This recipe was delicious, but I can't give it 5 stars because I used Progresso Clam Sauce with Garlic and Herbs instead of clam juice. It was very flavorful. The lemon juice balanced the seafood and garlic perfectly. Otherwise, I followed the recipe. For how easy, inexpensive and quick it was, it will go into the rotation for sure!
