Everybody loved it! Infact, my boyfriend liked it so much that I can actually bribe him by promising to make them! Super with fish. REALLY simple, too.

Lovely with roast duck, the lemon giving a nice edge. I will definitely be making these again-good cold too.

Easy to make - I would have perhaps liked a bit more pronounced lemon flavour but they were nevertheless a tasty and popular accompaniment to steaks and salad. Would definitely make again.
