I've no idea where I got this recipe from but I've made it countless times as it's a family fave on the grill.
This is one of the few recipes that I've not changed a thing on as it's excellent just the way it is.
It's very low in fat and sodium with lots of great tasting fresh herbs.
Excellent served with grilled asparagus, Ceasar salad and hot, fresh garlic bread.
