Excellent. A favorite of family and friends. I've made it with and without the saffron. If you don't have it in your pantry don't worry ... it's great either way.
We love this recipe!! It would be super expensive in a nice restaurant, but is not too unreasonable to make at home. Very tasty! We dipped french bread in the broth and sopped up every last drop!
Great recipe! I was making it just for two, so I just used the scallops, but I want to try it with the shrimp next time! I served it over rice, and it was a big hit!
Absolutely fabulous!! Everyone should try this. Definitely restaurant quality food here. The layers of flavors are wonderful. I used 3/4 lb of shellfish combined, and cut the remaining ingredients in half. That worked perfectly. I did use chicken broth and my tomatoes were seasoned with garlic and olive oil. Very very good. I will make this again, and I'm sure it will impress dinner guests.
I was searching for a recipe that included both shrimp and scallops and I just happened to have all the ingredients to make this wonderful recipe (I did have to substitute on onion for the shallot though). I served this over a small amount of whole wheat pasta and it was great! The lemon, the fresh basil, the saffron - great flavour mix. Everyone loved it, Thanks Kozmic Blues!
