This recipe was created at Pascal's Manale restaurant in New Orleans in 1954. It is often served with French bread for soaking up the rich sauce.

Cooked this recipe many times and it is always a hit. If you double it, don't double the lemon! Definitely serve with a baguette of French bread to mop up sauce.

We loved the lemon flavor .. just enough, though I did leave out the salt, I made as posted. This was easy to prepare too, as it made for a nice quick dinner last week. Made for Recipe Swap 41.
