    J. Ko's Note:

    This is a delicious dish. My father made it for me and gave me the recipe several years ago. I'm afraid I'm not sure where he got the recipe, but I believe it was from a chef at an inn in Maine. Like most absolutely fabulous dishes, this is not low fat but definitely worth the indulgence! This is really nice with a long grain rice and wild rice mixture or with nice crusty bread to sop up the sauce. Can be served as an appetizer or a main course.

      Yep - this recipe delivers.

      I'm a dunce in the kitchen and normally I'm only allowed to drive the BBQ - but this recipe was dead easy, and OH MY GOD tasty. I'm not sure what whipping cream is so I just used full cream, but everything else to the letter. YUMMO

      This was amazing. Even my picky 14 yearold ate the whole thing. The only problem is I have to make more. There were absolutly no leftovers.
