Bay Scallops with Avocado and Basil
From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com. This recipe was featured in a television show by Dorothy and the studio audience absolutely loved the combination of flavors. It makes a great holiday appetizer before you serve the Prime Rib!
2-3 cloves garlic
Wash and dry the basil, removing any of the stems that are tough and dry, leaving tender ones intact. In food processor with steel chopping blade in place, first whirl the garlic and then add basil, nuts, zest, juice, and salt to puree finely, drizzling in a bit of olive oil to give good consistency. Cut the avocado in half, discard the pit and peeling, quarter the avocado and whirl it into the mixture. Set aside while you cook the scallops.
