This would be a great dish withholding the olive oil, salt and wine but even having a small amount of wine that has had the alcohol cooked out is okay.
I think this was a great recipe. Omitting the olive oil, salt and wine as suggested would, in my opinion, make a bland, tasteless dish. As written, this recipe would not have alcohol in it--as prepared the alcohol would have cooked out. I suggest leaving the recipe as written and budgeting for the olive oil since, as writtine, you would be at about a teaspoon per serving. This is a great recipe! Thanks for sharing it.
