Stir in the lemon juice, Dijon mustard, salt, paprika and pepper.

Bring the sauce just back to a low boil and turn off heat.

Hi! This is a great recipe. For me, instead of milk and flour, I would use heavy cream, lemon juice curry powder salt and pepper. Pour over dish and back. If you need crunch, I would use aseago cheese whisks and crunch them n sprinkle over top. That would cut many carbs..no flour or pinko.

Orig recipe sounds yummy

New to keto, but 16g of carbs in a meal seems high when I’m shooting to stay under 25g for the day. With Panko and regular flour?!? What exactly makes this low carb (question not criticism)?

Hi Mark, thanks for your question. I don't have it listed as keto as this may be to high for keto guidelines. It does work for those following moderate or liberal low carb diets according to the info found at this link - carbshttps://www.dietdoctor.com/how-low-carb-is-low-carb
