This really is a recipe well worth consideration. Both DH and I were so pleasantly surprised the first time I made it! He's not real big on all the seafood recipes I make during lent, so for him to make a comment of any kind on a 'seafood recipe' is high praise indeed!

I was hoping for a recipe that takes fresh salmon from the grocery store, or even boneless chicken. But I'll seriously try this recipe of yours, soon as I can! It sounds wonderful!
