This was SO delicious and easy, too. I've had similiar food in expensive seafood restaurants! I think it would be great in a patti shell, but did not have that. I served it in a real sea shell. Also had fresh asparagus and crusty French bread.
This recipe is simple and delicious! I varied it a bit though, using regular yellow onion instead of green onions, and I omitted the cheese ( the last seafood thing I added cheese to was a disappointment, so I didn't want the same result with this). I also added about a teaspoon of Old Bay, and another teaspoon of Emeril's Essence, just to kick up the flavors. But overall, this was very good. I used a multigain loaf of french style bread, sliced thick, and toasted until crisp. I saved this to my cookbook, and will make it again! Thanks for posting!
