Although SueL is a superb cook and SL is my favorite magazine, this one just did not work well for me. A lot of work and a lot of $$ for a very so-so dish.
I made this casserole and it was excellent...except that I think the shrimp were a little too done, next time I will cook a little less...I found it tasted like Coquille St. Jacques..my dh asked that I keep it in my "exceptional meals" folder to make again...thanks it was delicious!
Sue, this is the most delicious seafood meal that i have made in a long time! I did add 1 Tbsp fresh chopped garlic when I sauteed the seafood, and used fresh mushrooms instead of canned, and fresh Italian flat leaf parsley from my garden, I did not have any almonds, so I omitted them. I had a bag of frozen shrimp/scallop mix in my freezer, and I was searching for the perfect recipe to use them up, I am so glad that I came across this one, it is absolutely fantastic...just the perfect blend of flavors. I can't wait to make this again, just delicious! Sue, thanks so much for posting ...Kittencal:)
