This recipe is supposed to feed four people, but my husband and I can finish it off with a margarita or two and a fresh loaf of sourdough bread all by ourselves, and I adjust the recipe often times making a little extra sauce as we love it so much.

You can grill shrimp, this crab, lobster, scallops or just about any seafood and serve with this buttery sauce and a loaf of sourdough bread. If you have to be healthy, add a nice salad of chopped vegetables and greens with a viniagrette.
