    1. Hello Joy…there's no particular lemon juice. I used the juice of half a lemon (look at the ingredients pic). The white wine i used is alcoholic but you can use water instead or any liquid stock…U can find parsley in any good market around u. Just ask anyone that works there to show u.

    1. Hello dear, you can use water or liquid stock in place of the white wine.
