If it was possible, I would have seafood every nite. Doesn’t matter if it’s oysters, shrimp, fish of any kind, scallops. Add in some pasta and I am in Seafood heaven.

Like this pasta with shrimp and scallops.

    Seafood Fettucine

      1 1/2 Tbl butter
      1 cup chopped green onions
      4 cloves garlic, diced
      1 lb medium shrimp, peeled
      1 lb sea scallops
      2 cups 1/2 and 1/2
      1/2 tsp salt
      1/4 tsp black pepper
      1/2 lb lump crabmeat
      3/4 cup grated fresh Parmesan Cheese, divided
      8 cups hot cooked fettuccine (abt 1 lb uncooked)
      1/4 cup fresh parsley {I used dried}

Pat the shrimp and scallops dry before cooking with paper towels so they don’t dilute he sauce.
Melt butter in a 12″ skillet over medium-high heat.
Add onions and garlic.
Saute 1 minute or until tender
Add shrimp and scallops.
Saute 3 minutes or until done.
Reduce heat to medium-low.
Add 1/2 and 1/2, salt, pepper, and crabmeat.
Cook 3 minutes or until thoroughly heated, stirring constantly (do not boil)
Gradually sprinkle 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese over seafood mixture, stirring constantly.
Cook 1 minute.
Remove from heat
Combine pasta and seafood mixture in a large bowl.
Top each serving with 1 1/2 tsp cheese and parsley.

This was really good. And very quick and easy. Once the shrimp are peeled that is!! One change I would make – sear the scallops before adding them to the mix. I think that would enhance the flavor and give them a better texture. This makes quite a bit of pasta. I hope it freezes well.

Recipe is from Cooking Light. I don’t remember which issue.
