Chef's Note

Healthy Tip
The recipe provides 280 ml (10 oz.) of marinade. Although this amount is necessary to prepare the seafood, not a lot of it has to be included when serving: 2 tablespoons per plate will suffice. In this way, you can reduce the calories from the sauce by half (902.3 to 451.1), cutting the calorie count to about 209.2 per serving.

For 4 servings

- 250 g (9 oz.) quick-frozen assorted seafood
- 4 spears of fresh white Austrian asparagus
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- salt and pepper

Olive oil and lime marinade

- 50 ml (10 teaspoons) white balsamic vinegar
- salt and freshly ground pepper
- a pinch of sugar
- 50 ml (10 teaspoons) beef broth
- 50 ml (10 teaspoons) white wine
  1. Thaw the seafood and sauté briefly in hot olive oil; season.
  2. In a small saucepan, combine all the ingredients for the marinade; warm slightly.
  3. Pour the lukewarm sauce over the seafood and marinate for 30 minutes.

Finishing and presentation
