-Lewis Carroll, Mathematician

The refrigerator light goes on...

Lemon and dill go together really well, especially in this butter sauce. This is such an easy recipe and you can use the butter on almost anything. It works well on pan roasted chicken breasts, sautéed shrimp or even seared pork chops.
