This is another recipe from the fantastic Two Oceans website, which I’ve adapted for Ireland.  It’s actually a super healthy recipe so if you want something delicious but “good” it’s perfect.  It goes really well with Pinot Grigio and theirs is of course a good match!  Subtly perfumed with floral notes and fragrances of dried apricot and peach and a hint of lychee, it’s crisp, zesty and easy-drinking.
