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.
