I sprinkled another round of salt at the end, just a little extra. Be careful not to use too much lemon or wine. I always worry about using too much salt with seafood because it’s salty already, but many recipes call for chicken stock with this recipe which I didn’t use, so a little extra salt helps the flavors fuse together.
