“Many people don't know that asking a chef of a restaurant for a recipe is a huge compliment. Recently at the coast, my DH and I enjoyed a romantic candlelit dinner and I was in heaven when I ordered this dish. I emailed the chef when I returned home and to my surprise, the restaurant emailed me the recipe. I wanted to get it on here before i lost it. I enjoyed this so much I plan to serve it to my family and friends for dinner parties. Although the chef emailed me and said they make this in huge quantities, the ingredients would have to be adjusted to the number of people served. So here is my version.... of that lovely dish!”
