    NurseJaney's Note:

    This was included in a Baltimore Sunpapers restaurant review several years ago, with professional-sized quantities, DH called the chef, and he kindly broke it down to more manageable proportions. All together, it is quite expensive, but a BIG hit at a "gourmet" dinner party. I found fairly inexpensive large martini glasses at Marshall's and Pier 1, heavy glass with a blue rim. A tad labor-intensive, but worth it.

      HOT stuff! In heat and taste! I used 2 fresh tomatoes for the canned and used 3 garlic cloves for I didn`t want toss exclude the 1/2. Served the sauce on shrimp and mussles on a bed of lettuce. This makes a lot so cut the recipe down or be prepared to freeze some.

      Wow! I used prawns, scallops and mussels and the sauce was just superb! The only change I made was to top with a little tinned red salmon because I didn't have crabmeat, that worked really well. For anyone put off by the Habanero it's not especially hot by the time it's seeded and boiled and certainly doesn't overpower the seafood, it's more of a warm dish. I made the full amount of sauce but used half the amount of seafood and have frozen the remaining sauce as suggested, next time I'll try with some lobster as well. Apart from serving in martini glasses this would make a really nice finger food wrapped in some nice fresh lettuce, or maybe rolled up in some rice paper.
