  4. I made this dish , it tasted perfect. I’m not really exactly what you’d refer to as an experienced cook, and really do not enjoy baffling recipes that will leave me stressed out when cooking. This is certainly so simple and delicious, excellent accompanied by a glass or two of white wine. Many thanks.
