The sauce that brought everything together was a fiery and buttery garlic lemon pepper. Everything came together in under 30 minutes. If you have half an hour to spare, you too can make a feast fit for a King.

Vietnamese Opo Squash & Shrimp Soup (Canh Bau Tom)

It's starting to feel like Summer! The weather is finally warming up. The birds are chirping. The kids are playing outside and the neighbors are walking around half-naked.

Not only can you use it as a lethal weapon, Opo Squash can be used in a traditional Vietnamese side dish, Opo Squash and Shrimp Soup (Canh Bau Tom).
