Recipe by Chef at Heart

I found this in a book about 10 years ago. I don't have the recipe but here is how I make it.

I made this as directed using about 3 tblsp minced garlic and found that it was sweet with a fiery aftertaste on the palette, I used a little cornflour in the sauce to thicken it slightly but I think that for me there was something missing, maybe some extra herbs or a dollop of sour cream mixed in would be nice. We still enjoyed it though so thanks for posting!
