I just commented and I think the internet freaked so it didn't post! But that looks absolutely delicious - and at 212 calories it is a must have dish. I'm on a beach vacation right now, so I am dying for seafood every night! Last night we made dijon seared Tuna - was fabulous, but I'm hoping to fit your dish in this week! Thanks for posting!
