Delicious and easy! Our sun dried tomatoes were expired, so I discarded them and made the dish without them. Even so, it was delicious!

Loved the poached part of this recipe. Made it with steelhead trout and used canned tomatoes rather than out-of-season fresh and it was terrific. Delicous no-brainer.
