The only thing I changed was the brown sugar to splenda. This makes it prefect for low carbers and diabetics or anyone else that just wants to kick out the sugar.

1/3 cup Lemon juice
1 tablespoon Paprika
2 teaspoons Salt
1 teaspoon Pepper

I used neither the brown sugar nor the Splenda. Very good result nevertheless.
