Inlaws over for dinner and wanted to impress and I did:) I think crawfish are called finger lobsters here, or should I say the finger lobsters @ the store looked alot like crawfish. In any case "finger lobsters" I used. Thanks for sharing

I made this almost exactly as written except that I used all shrimp, instead of the crawfish and shrimp combo, for the sauce. Crawfish is a bit hard to locate in Chicago area at this time of year! Anyways, this dish is delicious...I used, for the cream sauce, half heavy cream and for the other half, 1/2 & 1/2 cream. This was a nice treat for my husband and me, I served it with a rice pilaf mixed with fresh spinach. Very nice dinner! Thanks Mystergirl!
