Inspired by a wonderful dish I had at one of Toronto's great seafood restaurants.  I tried diligently for years to get the flavorings right in this recreation of a very impressive meal.  It's my favorite dish and I serve it when I'm enthusiastic about letting someone know I'm quite capable of finding his heart, via the old stomacharoo
