4-6 people



  • 1/2 cup Basil Olive Oil
  • 1/2 medium avocado, pitted and diced
  • 1 jalapeño, seeded and finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped shallot
  • 2 limes, halved
  • 2 Tablespoons chopped fresh basil
  • 1 Tablespoon coarsely chopped fresh cilantro leaves
  • Fine sea salt and freshly ground black pepper


  1. In a medium bowl, combine the Basil Olive Oil, avocado, jalapeño, garlic, and shallot. Squeeze limes into avocado mixture to keep the avocado from turning brown. Using a regular spoon or a grapefruit spoon, scrape pulp out of limes into the mixture. Stir to combine. If making sauce up to 4 days ahead, press a piece of plastic wrap directly onto surface of sauce. Cover and chill. Bring sauce to room temperature before continuing.
  2. Stir basil and cilantro into sauce just before serving. Season with salt and pepper.
