      Thanks Barb, this was just gorgeous and so easy to produce a fabulous meal. My DH thought there was too much lemon juice, I disagree and since I cook it...............! It did not make enough sauce for me so I will have to tweak it a bit next time. I think I didn't add enough white wine. I drank it instead.

      I was afraid that the sauce would be too acidic and too little of it (I also halved the butter in both steps), so I added some vegetable broth and it was perfect. Definitely restaurant quality. Thank you.

      Have prepared Monkfish before and was not pleased. This recipe was excellent. Did halve the butter for both steps (trying to cut down, you know!) and it still worked beautifully. Thanks Barb!
