Recipe by Stephanie Z.
READY IN: 30mins




  • Start by getting your ingredients ready. Dice the onion.
  • Melt butter on medium heat. Add diced onion and garlic, stirring frequently, about 5 minutes until onion is soft.
  • Add white wine. Turn up heat to high until boiling then back down to medium. Cook 5 minutes on medium.
  • Stir in clam juice, shrimp stock, and Old Bay Seasoning.
  • Stir together milk and half-and-half. Add cornstarch to this mixture, 1 tablespoon at first. Stir milk mixture in slowly, allowing the sauce to thicken. Add about half at first, slowly, while stirring.
  • If you'd like a thicker sauce, add more cornstarch to milk mixture. Continue to add milk mixture slowly, making sure that sauce is the desired thickness.
  • The sauce is now ready! It can be store for up to one week in the refrigerator. I like to freeze it in ice cube trays and use whenever I like.
  • Seafood Portofino:

  • Move mushrooms and seafood to one side of pan. Add linguine to other side. Using tongs, coat pasta with sauce (mussels should be open).
