This dish was really excellent and a lovely surprise. My husband, who was not raised a healthy eater, loved it! We both agreed that the taste and texture of the almond cream was the best part - very delicate, sweet and surprising. Give the almonds a bit more time than suggested; I got impatient and they were not as "golden-brown" as they could have been. This would be a great dish for entertaining!
