      I love this recipe! It can be alittle messy when you first start making it but it worth the clean up. I usually add alittle more lemon juice, but I love lemons. This is a once a week recipe during the summer. One of my husband's favorite recipes.

      Although my husband really enjoyed this recipe, I would have been happier with a little less lemon flavor. When I make this again, I'll probably omit the lemon juice and just use the seasoning for a more subtle touch of lemon.
