This is superb ! As I wasn't able to purchase any fresh basil today, I substituted 1 TBS dried basil, adding it in step 2. I served this over my own Cardamom and Fennel Flavored Rice Recipe #94024 (sorry for the shameless self-promotion, but the two went together very well).My ownly regret was that I didn't have more shrimp- there was easily enough sauce for 2 lbs, if not more. Thanks for posting !!
