Recipe Notes

If you are a garlic lover, this is as good as it gets. For some folks the garlic may be too much, but we wanted this to have that rich, creamy (almost overpowering) garlic flavor. This is a great dish served with a filet of whitefish like grouper or cod prepared very simply. The two will complement each other well.

If you are not a garlic lover, just use less garlic. Start with only about 4 cloves of the roasted garlic and adjust to taste.
