    ellie_'s Note:

    Adapted from recipe in WW magazine. the original recipe called for picholine olives (which I couldn't find) and pickled jalapenos (which I also couldn't find), so I made subs for both of these and it was a very good dish for dinner which we enjoyed. Only 4 points/serving!

      Va-Va-Voom! Just the right spice and piquancy. Couldn't find a serrano chili pepper, so used 1 medium jalapeno. Made for Rookie Recipe Tag.

      Well, I suspect that I deleted the 'Veracruz' from this recipe in that I substituted pimento-stuffed green olives for the jalapeno ones, & used green chilies instead of the serrano chili pepper! Way too much head for the likes of us, but with a combo of nice shrimp & very tender scallops, we had a wonderful seafood dinner! Thanks for sharing the recipe!
