This was really wonderful. Someone who almost never cooks asked for the recipe after eating this. I also garnished this with round slices of the citrus that was used for zest and it was lovely. I will certainly make this again and again. Thank you for the terrific recipe.
Very Very Good! Fast - Easy and delicious!!
I have served this several times. My family loves it, as well as dinner guests we have had. It's fairly simple, and delish!!!
