Finished product looks exactly like the picture. I cooked using 2 tablespoons of pre-chopped basil rather than cutting the basil fresh.

It was good! I added more spices parsley, dill, and white wine to make a reduction. Delightful! 😊

It was ok. The rub did not bring that much flavor. Would have been the same to use any pesto leftover...
