This is a delicious, all be it a bit time-consuming, favorite recipe of ours from my "Eve" cookbook. Eve Aronoff used to have a wonderful restaurant called "Eve" in Ann Arbor. I've loved everything made in this cookbook so far. This one is company-worthy in DH's and my opinion and we have both served this and been served this at dinner parties. We can't find the type of scallops she specifies and it has not been a problem. I take the tails off the shrimp for ease of eating.

Directions

  1. For the Cream:.
  2. Heat oil and butter in large saucepan and saute onions, ginger, garlic and jalapenos for about 3 minutes.
  3. Season with spices and salt and pepper.
  4. Add cream, simmer to reduce until sauce thickens, but is still silky and coats the back of a spoon, about 30-40 minutes.
  5. Remove from heat, add sriracha, lime juice, and brown sugar and cheese.
  6. Adjust seasonings generously to taste.
  7. For the Seafood Pasta:.
  8. Season shrimp and scallops with kosher salt and freshly ground pepper and set aside.
  9. Heat oil in a large saute pan and saute shrimp and scallops over medium-high heat until just cooked through, being careful not to overcrowd pan or seafood will not be able to carmelize properly, and set aside.
  10. While seafood is cooking, in separate saute pan, heat olive oil and saute onions for 1-2 minutes; add sugar snap peas, toss and cook very briefly, about 30 seconds. Season with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  11. Add Curry Cream and bring to a simmer and adjust seasoning generously to taste.
  12. Add pasta to Curry Cream and toss until evenly coated--adjust seasonings to taste.
  13. To serve, make a small ruffle of baby spinach around perimeter of each bowl, mound pasta in the center, and top with shredded Reggiano and sauteed shrimp and scallops.
