Very good. My hubby, a pistachio "nut", went crazy for this. Will definitely make again.

I've been making this recipe for quite a few years. I serve it on New Year's Eve as part of a lobster dinner. I have a feeling my guests would not show up if I tried something new. Actually it's my husband who has said he wouldn't show up. Thanks for sharing.
