    we had this for dinner the other night, although it didn’t turn out as immaculate as the photo (I Highly suspect you used RAW lemons for that photo but i’ll forgive you :P)

    it was delicious and oh so tender. worth spending the extra to get fresh fish, and also worth spending the time to make the mayo and the tartar sauce :)
