This is absolutely fabulous! Wonderful blend of flavors. I used a 14.5 ounce can of diced tomatoes, drained and cut back on the basil, other than that I made as written. This will be saved in my seafood recipes and made often. Thanks for posting such a quick delicious meal . Made for July's Tag Game ~ Aceitunas ~ Olives.

Very good! And you can tweek this alot! I added the some capers, olives and half of fresh jalapeno from the garden. You can have fun with this recipe or have it as is.

This was delicious! I didn't have olives, I used a few capers instead and they worked just fine. Will definitely make this one again (and make more of it!).
