Very good! I made a small technical change, in that I sauteed off the shallots until golden, then added the minced garlic for a minute. This eliminated the harsh taste of both when raw, and let them play a more mellow, though still important, role in the final product. The fresh basil makes this recipe. I also add 2 drops of pure vanilla extract, which serves to make the flavors even cleaner and brighter in their orchestration. In place of salt, I use vegetable base, which adds yet another boost of flavor. Don't get me wrong - the recipe is good as is, but can use just a whisker of improvement to bring it stellar heights.
