"Absolutely delicious! I tried this with whole stuffed trout -sauteeing all the ingredents together but the tomatoes and bread cubes which was added prior to stuffing- and threw in some shrimp. Will be a staple at my home."

"This was the centerpiece of my Christmas Dinner absolutely delicious!!! Must try. The only thing I did differently was add shrimp and sauteed all the ingredients at the beginning but the tomatos and bread.

Good luck!"
