This is DH's special request. I keep trying to tell him I can't cook. I searched and searched the DB and could not find this recipe. Well maybe I actually can cook, because this good!

I listened to everyone's reviews and added more lemon, it was not needed. The first few bites are impressive with the extra lemon, but shortly after it makes overkill. Make it as outlined here and you'll be fine! Also don't worry about seasoning until the reduction is done. All and all this was an excellent relatively easy dish that I plan to make again!!!!! Me and my hubby loved it!
