The dish comes from Abigail’s, a quaint restaurant in Rocheport, Mo., pop. 239. Its flavor will surprise you. A sweet main course might take some getting used to, but the combination seems just right for a light summer dinner. The minimal prep involved will have you sitting alfresco with a refreshing beverage in no time flat.
Serve with a salad of bitter greens and grilled or pan-roasted wedges of radicchio.
