This rich satisfying dish, adapted from a recipe given to me by a friend, is my husband's favorite. I usually serve it on his birthday. It's loaded with scallops, shrimp and crab in a creamy sauce. I consider this the "crown jewel" in my repertoire of recipes. —Elena Hansen, Ruidoso, New Mexico

"I have to join the other 5 star raters with this one. Its very rich and wonderful. Impressive and very satisfying. I did use a few suggestions. I feel that this recipe will do just fine with just 2 seafood choices. If Crab is one of them Use fresh. Next time I will just use shrimp & Crab. I also reduced the clam juice and used a dry sherry.

This recipe will serve quite a few so I downsized it to just 2.
I also feel that this would be perfect for stuffing pasta shells * Next time for sure.

"Delicious! My sauce was a little bit runny after it baked. I'll be sure to thicken it a bit more next time. But this recipe is definitely a keeper!"

"My family thought this was the best dish ever! There were no leftovers and I think if I'd doubled it, they would have still eaten all of it!"
