This was a very tasty dish! I used a mix of scallops and shrimp, which went very well with the cream and sage. Because DH is watching his carbs we didn't have this with pasta or rice, so I'll probably thicken up the sauce a bit the next time since it's rather thin on its own. As it was, though, DH slurped up the sauce like it was soup and left his plate spotless. Thanks for a great, easy seafood recipe!
