This was fantastic. DH said, "This is definitely a 'keeper'." The only change I made to the recipe was to use Lawrey's Tabasco seasoned salt. I forgot the lemon wedges at the end and it was still fabulous--I'll try that next time. It seemed to take more time to prepare than I expected, but it was well worth it. I served this with rice pilaf (recipe #5034) and green beans. Terrific. I will definitely make this again.
