“A spicy nip, an earthy sweet, a flash of salt, a bitter green, and a veil of "something exotic" choreograph a dance across the taste buds coming together in harmony with flashing solos of flavor woven throughout. I don't know how this symphony of flavor happened, but it just came together magically. It is light yet filling enough to make a meal of it. I added Love, Joy, Happiness and Delight when I prepped and cooked it and it came out wonderfully! My family unanimously scored this one a keeper! Hope you enjoy.”
