Oh my was this fantastic!! I made exactly as written and the whole family dug in. I put this together in less than 1 hour total time (start to serve). I will make this again! The flavors were bright and fresh and I could see serving this often this fall and winter. It is a very hearty dish. I served with a large tossed salad and recipe#109456. Made for August Seafood Challenge 2008. Thanks AZRoxy63 for a great recipe!
