    JackieOhNo!'s Note:

    Use shrimp or scallops (or a combination) in this delicious sauce flavored with basil, garlic, and oil. You can also use the sauce on poached salmon or whitefish, too. I like to serve this over pasta with some sauteed whole mushrooms and a tossed green salad. Be sure not too cook the seafood too long or it will toughen. This recipe is easily halved or doubled.

      This is delicious! I made this for scallops, and would love to have served over angel hair pasta, but right now I can't have any pasta for dietary reasons. Fabulous scallops, and I know I'll make these again. Thanks for sharing. Made for Holiday Tag game.
