Simply? This was just yummy. No way around it! During my trip to Florida for my third half marathon, my friend, gracious host that he is, prepared this dish for us one night. When I ate it the first time, I’d had a “few” drinks so I wondered if it was really as good as I remembered, and while it seems food never quite tastes the same when you cook it for yourself, this was just as good! I made a few changes from his instructions because I wanted it as simple and quick as possible.
I served this with a side salad tossed with a 1/4 cup EVOO, a teaspoon of Dijon mustard, a clove garlic, chopped, and a healthy sprinkle of garlic salt. The recipe also courtesy of said Floridian friend.
