Personal Notes:
Simplicity at it's finest. Great after a simple salad and warm bread and butter alone or as a first course. Serve with a simple side of corn relish, hot tomato salsa, or other simple vegetable like pan fried zucchini. This is meant to be a light meal and perfect in the summer. Sweet, salty, and light.
