Company Worthy and Restaurant Quality! Be sure to make your sauce ahead of time to let the ingedients meld. I added more dijon, lemon, and the 4 cloves of garlic made it very garlicky! But it...

I was surprised at how tasty the lemon garlic sauce was! I ended using trout and baking the fish, so the 2 tbsp of olive oil called for grilling wasn't necessary. And the amount of sauce they te...

I was a little concerned that this would taste like mayo but the sauce was great. I also added lemon pepper to the salmon and made it on the Foreman grill. Great!
