This is a really tasty meal that's not difficult to do & that should fulfil most appetites. I found the recipe in a magazine, many years ago & even though it's been cooked many times, we still enjoy the dish today.

A NOTE TO EVERYONE WHO HAS PINCHED THIS RECIPE PRIOR TO 3rd APRIL.
My sincere apologies to you all for adding tarragon in the 'directions' of this recipe. I have no idea why I did it as I have never used it with this dish. Can only think that my mind had gone for a walkabout or something. Thank you Judy for making me aware of it.
