Delicious and Easy to Make-I love this recipe and would not change a thing. It is critical not to overcook the shrimp or scallops or you will miss out on their delectable textures. I love how each ingredient plays its part without overwhelming the others and the texture is indeed rich and creamy. I made it twice last year and am looking forward to making it for dinner tonight as there is a chill in the air. A warmed artisanal bread iwith Irish butter is the best go-with.
We loved it! I made some changes: used 4 poblano peppers in place of the orange bell pepper, leftover russet baked potatoes instead of the red potatoes, leftover Mahi Mahi for the fish, half-and-half instead of regular milk and I actually forgot to add the cheese! I did stir in 1cup extra milk and 1cup extra broth; adjust to taste. Added about 3-4 tablespoons of butter and about 1/4-1/2 teaspoon of black pepper. Oh, and since I was out of celery I stirred in about a teaspoon of celery seeds. LOL!!! It really looks like I took a lot of liberties here! But the result was excellent and we'll definitely make this again when we have leftover seafood.
Very filling and delicious! My 7 yr old and 3 yr old loved it! As did The Hubs!
SO yummy! Didn't have any scallops, so just used extra shrimp. So easy, but seems like you fussed. Extra-crispy bacon is perfect for garnish. Yum yum yum.
