    Mysterygirl's Note:

    I haven't tried this one yet. It comes from McCormick Seasoning and sounds intriguing, don't you think?!

      The flavour for this is pretty intense and I think the next time I would cut the vanilla a bit, as another person suggested. However, it is tasty and definitely different! Best served with something relatively bland, such as pasta in a simple parmesan and butter sauce, in my opinion.

      Funny thing - was thinking about posting a recipe that used vanilla as a flavouring for a savoury dish. I ran a search on "vanilla" and found this. Yes! I urge you (and everyone else) to try it. A vanilla bean in the saute was my grandmother's "secret" ingredient for shellfish, or any white fleshed fish cooked "francais" style, as this is. I also put vanilla extract in the batter for a fried seafood dish (the one I was thinking of posting). Haven't actually tried your posted recipe (yet), but I'd likely use shallots instead of onion, if possible, and definitely fresh garlic instead of powder - I'm guessing McCormack's sells the garlic powder as well - or maybe I'm just pretentious :-) I'd also suggest that the skeptical non-vanilla lovers start with less than a tbs vanilla extract - maybe half that. You can always add more to the sauce in the final reduction, to taste. Thank you for posting this!

      The recipe did sound interesting, but I couldn't taste much of the vanilla. This could have been a result of adding some fresh basil which may have over powered the vanilla. I plan on making it again with some light cream minus the basil. (My chef to be daughter told me the reason I didn't get a strong vanilla flavor was because I used pre-cooked frozen shrimp).
