I made this recipe tonight. Oh my goodness it is absolutely delicious! My husband said I better keep a copy and fix it often. The honey/lemon/garlic/lavender/wine seasonings are big hits. I love how simple this was to make also. I had everything in the pantry but the wine. He was more than glad to shop for me.
Ps, in the directions where you add the lemon slices & lavender to the top, I added the garlic as well on the top.
The only problem I now have is the entire house smells like a restaurant. I want more & I only made enough for two plates. Thank you for all the fab recipes you post!
