Plus, with the light lemon sauce, it’s a perfect dish to pair with a small leafy salad or even a baguette that picks up all that flavor when you dip it a little into the sauce. Because, let’s be honest, we’re not at the restaurant and that bread is getting dipped.

I’m not pulling any punches. There’s a line here–and I’m crossing it with my baguette to get that tasty sauce.
