This is an easy one to cobble together and is excellent with a few chips on a warm Summer’s evening, and a nice cold larger.

Served these yesterday evening as a simple dinner on a rainy evening. We relaxed outside and chatted as the rain softly drummed on the roof of the pergola.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.
