ég steingleymdi að svara þér Íris mín....sorry :)

Ja þessi réttur er fyrir 4-6 manns en er einmitt passlegur sem forréttur fyrir 8 líka. Reykna þá með 1 hörpuskel á mann.

Banana shalott er bara shalott laukur sem er aðeins stærri og lengri og er því kallaður banan shalott.

æeg mæli með þessum fyrir næsta matarboð.
