    It was so delicious! I cooked it yesterday and it looked gorgeous and tasted fantastic. At first I didn't find all I need to cook it, but after a little shopping tour I had everything needed for the recipe. I can just recommend this meal for everyone who wants to fry something special. In my opinion this recipe would really deserve it to be the winner. Very nice work man! :D
