I tried the dish just last week. The recipe was on the Phantom Gourmet T.V. Show here in Boston. It was so good that I just wanted to pass it on to every one.<br />

I watch that show every week myself. I saw this recipe and wanted to try it also. But I forgot to write it down. Thanks for doing it. I made it at home it was very good and I think that I might add some capers to the sauce next time.
