Recipe by Sharon123

A quick spurt of herb oil does wonders for tuna, shrimp or scallops, polenta, risotto and cooked or uncooked salads. You can keep this oil in a plastic spray bottle! Clayton Babas, Executive Chef, at the Guam Reef Hotel makes this for the guests.

Quick, simple, delicious. I did not blanch the cilantro - just used raw fresh, and I had no problems. Great condiment!
