I salt and peppered the steaks before drizzling with butter/garlic sauce. When serving, I also topped the tomato mixture with sliced greek olives...gave it an added punch!-27 Oct 2017
This has the bases of a decent tasty meal, but following the recipe here,it didn't quite work out. Firstly 120g of basil! blimey that is loads.. I only had two plants and managed 80g and that was plenty, secondly two teaspoons of lime juice made it far to sour, i had to add sugar and a little tomato puree and half a tin of chopped tomatoes to sweeten it up.I'm going to try it again with a few tweeks.-27 Jul 2015

This was outstanding! I had to make a few substitutions for things I didn't have onhand (I used lemon juice instead of lime juice, and I didn't have fresh basil so I used Emeril's Italian Essence). I made angel hair on the side & spooned some of the tomato mixture on that, too...heavenly! Thank you, Mister Glasser!-12 Jul 2002
