Fish was great...just go easy on the salt. Sauce was very strong. I was tripling the recipe and I ended up adding an additional tablespoon of butter, and 2 tablespoons of heavy cream, and it ended up alright...still might take the lemon juice down a notch.

I made this with tilapia last week and the entire family loved it. Tonight I'm going to try it with chicken. Be sure to double or even triple the sauce. Such a simple and quick recipe! Thanks!
