Ready In:




  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil with 1 Tbsp salt. Cook pasta in boiling water until it is al dente. Drain and hold.
  • In a skillet over medium high heat, melt the butter until it froths. Add the scallions, garlic, shallots, and seafood. Sauté until aromatic and the shrimp are pink, about 3 minutes. The seafood will be slightly undercooked at this point.
  • Add wine, stirring from the bottom of the skillet. Reduce wine to half, about 6 minutes.
  • Push seafood to the side of the skillet, add 2 Tbsp of butter and swirl gently. Slowly add cream, whisking gently so that the cream thickens.
  • Add tarragon, marjoram, salt and pepper, and Tabasco sauce. Stir seafood and sauce together to combine.
  • Plate the fettuccine, pour the sauce over, and garnish with the parsley.

  1. 10 STARS, and I could die tomorrow a happy man!, cried DH. Ready to cook but short a shallot, I decided to use a small onion and matching mass in garlic, added to the food processor for mincing. I used half-and-half, but next time I would use whipping cream to ensure a thick sauce without prolonged heating. After cooking shrimps and scallops, I removed the already cooked shrimp to a 200F oven before adding the wine. After adding the cream and seasonings, and accepting the current thickness of the sauce, I added back the shrimp to let them soak up some of the seasoning. As a result, our scallops and shrimps were all perfectly cooked. The key accent to the sauce was the tarragon, so next time I will splurge on fresh tarragon. Made for Best of 2013, based on the recommendation of Kerfuffle-Upon-Wincle.
  2. Very tasty, quick, and easy! I liked the addition of the tarragon and marjoram. I was disappointed that I could not find a frozen seafood mix with octopus! I thought the octopus would have made a unique photo! Tagged for Fall Photo Tag (due 11/26 with extension).
