In France, green garlic butter is traditionally served with snails-escargots. This version with Pastis is also particularly delicious and fragrant drizzled over scallops or mussels (see my Moules Farcies Gratinees - French Mussels recipe #299761 #299761). Serve with plenty of fresh lemon wedges, slices of French bread for mopping the fragrant juices, and a crisp, chilled white wine such as Muscadet or Sancerre. Bon appetit! Williams-Sonoma.
