"You can substitute coarsely chopped white or red onion for the green onions. Also try experimenting with other combinations of citrus juice, lemon is especially nice in combination with both the lime and orange juice. Don't be too concerned about how much juice to use, just add the extra flavor and cook down to desired consistency.
