We were served this by a wonderful lady named Marika. It was so good that my 9 yr old asked if she could copy down the recipe. :o) It came from a cookbook but I can't remember the title, so we just call it "Marika's Sauce." She made two pots of it, one plain and one with sauteed scallops and shrimp in it; both were fantastic! The nutmeg gives it a really unique kick. Every time I've made it, it's turned out just as good...very easy and oh so delicious. (About half the time I skip the parsley, so that's probably an optional ingredient.)
