I have pretty much eliminated all meat from my diet at this point but I do love seafood. The rest of my family though has no desire to give up meat so seafood is a good compromise for us. This simple dish was not only delicious and easy to make, it looked like a fancy gourmet meal. That worked perfectly since Real Food Jr. was spending the night with a friend so Mr. Real Food and I had a dinner date night at home! This recipe takes less than 30 minutes to make too! I served it with this Spinach Tomato Salad for a beautiful, delicious, and healthy dinner.
