- 1/2 teaspoon pepper, divided
- 2 teaspoons butter

Excellent. Fancy taste (used thyme and rosemary instead of tarragon).

This was great! Easy to prepare. I made it as written except that I omitted the garlic. My guests loved it and wanted the recipe.

I used thyme instead of tarragon. I didn't have any on hand, and it tasted pretty fantastic!

This recipe was very good. I would certainly make it again. Nice with mashed potatoes and stir fried vegetables.
