Lemon Sauce

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by King Jay II

This is a great basic lemon sauce. You can use it almost any way. I like to use gluten free fry batter, fry fresh fish or chicken, serve over a plate of rice and pour the sauce over the entree.

Made this as a second dip for some chicken bits, & it was great, just great, but then we do love the taste of lemon! Great recipe to keep around! Thanks for sharing it! [Made & reviewed for the closing of Pick A Chef event]
