This was so dam good. Oh my god. I did this with my surf and turf dinner. I really love you chef John. Lol. Follow exact instructions and you won't go wrong. This is coming from someone who does not cook a lot. But likes to eat. Actually my fiancé is the cook in the house and he was very happy when I served this. Thanks again chef John.
