Another clipping from the collection, origin unknown. Makes a pleasant tangy main dish suitable for company. Suggested accompaniments are peas with pearl onions and carrots, or medium egg noodles with butter and poppy seeds.

I came across this recipe years ago. It's the one I make for special dinner guests. Every single time I've made it, I have been asked for the recipe. I rub on the Dijon/spice, roll in Parsley in advance, wrap in plastic wrap and let it sit in the fridge to absorb flavours. It also gives me time to prepare the rest of the dinner. This is, by far, my favourite recipe. I highly recommend it. I just wish Black/Red Currant jam wasn't so expensive...
