I enjoyed this dish although the rest of my family did not seem to agree. Thank you.

I couldn't wait to make this recipe as it sounded so good to me. Well I did, and it was a hit. My family and I really loved it! We had them with mashed potatoes and a salad with fresh greens, strawberries, walnuts and goat cheese, with onions and tomatoes and orange poppyseed dressing. Such a great dinner! Thanks for your contribution Wendy!

Really quite excellent. A different flavour from the same old round of dishes and easy to make too. I like to make a bit more orange sauce these days coz the young 'un can't resist it.
