This simple dish is so easy, healthy and delicious that it is perfect for just you, or a crowd. With little prep work and a fancy presentation you will look like you worked hard in the kitchen while instead you were having a glass of wine on the veranda… Well, that’s what I did! My Hubby and I really enjoyed this meal together.
