My Dad used to love anything lemon flavored, from teas to entrees to baked goods. If it was lemon, it suited him well!

I used to make this spread as an appetizer for many family get togethers, and particularly for his birthday.

NOTE: May garnish with lemon wedges if desired. Imitation lobster or a combination yields tasty results as well!
