- Put spaghetti on to cook.
- Heat olive oil in skillet, add garlic to saute - do not brown.
- Add shrimp and saute for about 2 min or until starting to turn pink.
- Add scallops and saute for another 1 or 2 min, keeping heat high, but do not burn.
- Add wine and lemon juice and stir to combine. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat a little. (med-high - just on the verge of bubbling, but not too hot or you'll overcook the seafood.
- Add salt and pepper.
- Add lobster meat and combine.
- Add red pepper flakes.
- Add the butter and swirl.
- Is your pasta done? If so, drain and put into pot to stay warm.
- Add the parsley flakes.
- At this point, your sauce may have thickened to your liking. Poor over pasta. If you would like your sauce a bit thicker, sprinkle corn starch over the sauce and stir it in and keep stirring until the sauce thickens a bit. It is still going to be a brothy sauce, but it will thicken. Once thick, turn down heat.
- If you haven't finished cooking your pasta, do that now, drain, and poor the tall the sauce over the pasta and combine.
