Rich and tasty. I had this in a restaurant years ago, then experimented with it at home until I finally got it right.

It really didn't work for me. The (far from inexpensive) ingredients seemed full of promise, but it just didn't come together. Why I don't know - but to my palate, it was rather bland and tasted a bit metallic.-08 Jan 2018
What a divine recipe. I substitued white wine for the amaratto and omitted the capers - not a big fan of each in savoury dishes. It was sublime, restaurant quality food. Can highly recommend and it takes no time at all to put together. Thanks Rebecca! x-02 Aug 2011
