The only change I made when preparing this recipe was to use lemon pepper instead of the indicated salt & pepper, & although the resulting dish was very, very tasty, another time I might follow White Rose Child's suggestion & cut back on the amount of olive oil used! We really enjoyed the flavor combo here ~ Definitely a keeper of a recipe! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]

'When I tagged this it had no reviews, but I agree with Brooke! Very original and absolutely delish! I only used 1 Tbsp of oil in each step, and sprinkled it with coarse celtic sea salt- that makes EVERYTHING even better, though this dish was still awesome on its own! Thanks gertc!
