“ about dinner in like...15 minutes. Don't forget the bag of salad (ya just gotta eat green things!) Now for my notes on this one -- I didn't have a microplane at the time so instead of the zest, I just squeezed juice from a fresh lemon. I didn't have white wine either, but I did have some sherry and that came out ok too! By the way, here's a rule of thumb when adding wines to food -- if you wouldn't drink it out of a glass, don't put it in your food! Finally, I added about a teaspoon of finely chopped garlic cuz Emeril says it's good for ya. Deeeeeeeeeeee-lish!!!”
