We just made this as a side to steak and boiled mint potatoes, simply yummy!

My first time with fiddleheads. Forgot to add the salt to the boiling water, hopefully that wasn't a big error. After 15 minutes the fiddleheads were overcooked, quite mushy. The fiddleheads have a very delicate flavour, I was expecting something much stronger. The lemon faded into the butter. So a last squeeze over the top was nice.
