i love this sauce on grilled/broiled seafood and vegetables. the dijon mustard and garlic are optional because i’ve made this without those ingredients and its still extremely tasty. if you need to make a larger batch of this, just remember the rule of thumb is equal parts lemon to olive oil. i also made this with meyer lemons, which can be nice if you are wanting a slightly sweeter/less acidic vibe.
