Though I have not tried this myself, the picture in the book looked delicious. It can be grilled or broiled. This looked like a healthy alternative to other preparations I've seen. From a cookbook entitled The Ultimate Cooking Course, 2003.

This was a big hit at my barbeque this weekend. We all loved it. Only change was to add some Italian herbs with the rosemary.
