Lemony Garlic Cream Sauce

This sauce is a dream – it’s become a regular feature in my life. Somehow it’s so much more than a┬ásum of its parts, which are pretty amazing anyway! It goes beautifully over chicken or fish, with pasta or shrimp. And it’s so easy – I made it recently on holiday, after a day of…
