Okay....so you know how much IT Guy LOVES seafood, right? HA!!! I kid, I kid. He hates it. So this was MINE! I made this one afternoon while he was at work and ate it for lunch AND dinner. You should have seen the look of terror on IT Guy’s face when he walked in the door and saw it...and then it changed to the utmost relief when he saw the steak I had cooked for him. Anyway...don’t listen to IT Guy because this is GOOD!!! Next time I make it, and trust me, there WILL be a next time...I’m going to serve it over toasted french bread....YUM!
