    JPsBarbie's Note:

    I found myself without a car today and had to come up with dinner from things in the freezer and pantry. A quick inventory was pointing me in the direction of scampi but I wanted something a bit different. This is still very garlicky and yet the creamy cheesy sauce makes it somewhat comforting and very decadent. Served it with some steamed broccoli and crusty bread.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Melt butter in pan and add garlic and orzo. Add some of the Bahama Mama seasoning (I prefer it to the Old Bay). Cook about 5 minutes or until orzo turns a golden brown. Be careful not to burn it.
    2. 2
      Add clam broth and water. Cover and cook for about 15 minutes stirring occassionally to keep from clumping.
    3. 3
      Add mushrooms, shrimp, and scallops. Stir and cover for 5 minutes.
    4. 4
      Stir in heavy cream and cheese. Cover and cook for about 5 more minutes.
    5. 5
      Add salt, pepper, or more of the Bahama Mama seasoning to taste.

      This is absolutely delicious! So full of flavor and creamy, a decadent comfort food indeed. I cut the recipe in half and made as written using the Old Bay Seasoning. This goes into my seafood rotation and will be made often. Thanks for posting such a wonderful recipe. *Made for Spring 2011 PAC*
