My friend prepared this meal for us one evening and I included it in our Family Recipe Book; it remains a favourite. Tastes very rich but very low fat and so easy to prepare.

Sage, this is one delicious sauce! followed your recipe except I didn't add the shrimps or scallops until the very last step and then simmered them for 5 minutes I can't get Essence of Emeril, or at least I haven't seen it so I added Denzel"s sauce - it's spicy but worked well Thank-you for a recipe I will enjoy itover and over again

Delightful recipe that is not overly complicated. I was intrigued by the idea of mixing low-fat sour cream into hot pasta, but it turned out to be a wonderful way to add a bit of creaminess to the final recipe. I like the hints from other reviewers: don't add shrimp and scallops until just before thickening the sauce. Deglaze pan with a little wine after sauting onion. Enjoy!

This is a great sauce for seafood and one I will use often! Great flavors going on here. My family just about swallowed it whole so they could go for seconds. Good thing I doubled the recipe so we could have leftovers. I served it over linguine noodles with great success!
