Delicious and so easy to make.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 3, 2012

I made this last night for my boyfriend and I along with the Shiitake & Butternut Risotto. I'm not a big fan of sea food and I thought it was delicious. Next time I will probably tone down the lemon because I'm not a big fan. Otherwise Perfect.
