I love the flavor of this - it's very nutty and slightly sweet from the Amaretto. It worked well with spicy shrimp. I'm glad to have this in my cookbooks, I will be making this again.
This was so easily prepared and I enjoyed the delicate nutty flavour. We eat a lot of rice and its always good to find a new twist on an old favourite!
Thank you, Vicky, this was made in loving memory, gone too soon, always missed.
Very good! I thought the almond flavor would be overpowering, so I used less almond extract, and it was perfect.
