I really liked this recipe and thought the dry sherry added a real nice taste to it. I found this easy to make and will be making this again in the future.
We really enjoyed this dish. I was happy to find that it wasn't overly sweet. We are not fond of nuts in our food, so I used half the amount called for. They did add a nice crunch to each bite. A nice change from the norm. Overall a very tasty dish. Served it with Moroccan Chicken Kebabs / Skewers and Bourbon Carrots. All went well together. Thanks for posting.
This is a nice dish and my family really enjoyed it. We really did not like the raisins in it - so I think next time we will use only the almonds (that is just a family taste and nothing against the recipe). The addition of the dry sherry was wonderful and really gave a nice flavor to the dish overall. Made for Zaar Cookbook Tag June 2008. Thanks for sharing this recipe with us!
