Top Review by cnansel

I had spotted this years ago saved it to my cookbook and never got around to making it....and oh-h-h am I so sorry to think i missed out on this WONDERFUL dish all these years!!!! Very easy and quick to fix made it exactly as it is here served over a little rice with steamed broccoli on the side. No left overs... This one is a keeper...and a tastey way to use those wonderful pink grapefruits.
