Crab-Topped Fish Fillets are elegant enough for company but truly no-fuss. "We live in south Florida, where fish is abundant," writes Mary Tuthill of F. Myers Beach. "We like to get together with friends in the afternoon, so I often need to whip up a quick dinner when we get home. This special fish is one of my husband's favorites."
"My husband has always been a beef and pork man, but after 53 years, I've finally gotten him to eat seafood," writes Aletha Graves of Bellingham, Washington. "Sometimes I substitute cubed pork for the shrimp, and that's excellent, too!"
Shrimp and clams give such an elegant touch to this easy-to-fix linguine dish that people will think you fussed, predicts Karen Fitzgerald of Mt. Airy, Maryland. "I'm a day-care provider with a husband and two hungry boys to cook for. When I'm pressed for time, I rely on this tried-and-true recipe that everyone likes."
I make this main course when I want to wow company. It tastes heavenly, and guests always love it. The subtle flavor of tarragon in the creamy sauce complements the mushrooms, chicken and scallops nicely.

This is a very easy dish to prepare for two. After the shrimp have marinated, dinner can be on the table in minutes! It's a refreshing departure from meat, and the mixture of flavors is delicious.

"Everyone who tries this elegant variation on the standard burrito loves it," relates Karen Dye of Tempe, Arizona. "Serve with a green salad for a lighter lunch or with traditional rice and beans for supper," she suggests.
After tasting fettuccine Alfredo at a restaurant, I tried to duplicate the recipe at home. You can't imagine how pleased I was when I came up with this delicious version. Not only does my family love the creamy dish, but my husband prefers it to the one at the restaurant. —Rae Natoli, Kingston, New York
