Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



This is the kind of food I really enjoy very much! The winter is approaching and I was lucky that I could find all the herbs (except the thyme) in my garden. The marjoram is drying and I will see this only next spring again, but I found some more protected sprigs which I could use. The long marinating enhanced the herbs flavor and gave the dish the last warm rays of the season.I realized that I forgot the lemon wedges, but is was so tasty that I did not miss these! Thanks a lot for this great recipe.
