Fabulous recipe, or close to as I ran out of gas so used a George Forman grill. Used fresh dill as I didn't read the ingredients properly, and couldn't find lemon pepper so used lemon juice, black pepper & salt. Very liberal with measures as serving 2, and what a lovely avocado sauce with a big garlicky-bite! Served it with GF grilled cherry toms, cucumber and new potatoes. My partner who hates avocado loved the dish, will be doing this again! - 19 Apr 2016
