Reviews forSeafood Lasagna
"Well Based on some of the reviews - yes I made some changes. B/c of the changes I was able to make TWO lasagnas and I used the NO BOIL Lasagna! WIn-Win!!!I added a ricotta mix to make this dish like a lasagna. To my ricotta I like to add chili powder, egg, garlic powder, salt, fresh cilantro, and black pepper. I think the chili powder help to bring out the flavor to the whole dish b/c it is a creamy dish.I did add fresh chopped garlic when I cooked the green onions - BUT I also added and cooked 1 diced white onion tooI doubled the creamy mix b/c I used the no boil lasagna noodles and I felt the ratio of the seafood: shrimp (cut into 3 pieces if using large shrimp (1lb), scallops (1lb), and claw crab meat (1lb) would have needed the extra sauceI did not expect to make 2, but I did. One dish had 4 noodle layers and my other dish just had 3 noodle layers.I did noodle, ricotta, mozzarella and parmesean cheese layer, followed by seafood sauce. Then repeat the layers. Be sure to reserve just a cup of sauce (without the seafood) for the top last layer of the lasagna. I did top that with Mozzarella too. I didn't reserve sauce for my 2nd dish top noodle, so it was covered with the seafood. I didn't want it to burn, so that one had extra mozzarella cheese on it.Yes this is a heart attack waiting to happen, but if you are going for it, then go for it. I wouldn't make this everyday, maybe special occasions. Everyone LOVED it. I made it for a potluck. It is a little time consuming, but oh so good!!! The other dish I gave pieces away. I only wanted 2 pieces b/c I am health conscious. But no doubt with my changes it was good.I don't measure, but I used this recipe as a guideline."
"I rated this a 4 because it tasted ok. However, it is missing garlic. I don't feel this is a lasagna, but a seafood Alfredo using lasagna noodles. It is seafood with an Alfredo sauce (except for the missing garlic) and lasagna noodles."
"ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS! I MADE IT INSTEAD OF MY USUAL RECIPE AND IT WAS AWESOME. WOULD MAKE A GREAT soup ALSO. BEST ONLINE RECIPE I HAVE EVER MADE!"
"A great lasagna recipe. I like to add thinly-sliced mushrooms as the crab, scallop, shrimp and cream sauce mixture can become a little rich without the mushrooms to balance it out. I also believe in splurging a little more on real lump crab meat as opposed to imitation crab meat as this dish is one that deserves the best."
"I make this a couple of times a year, usually for a special occasion. Always a hit!"
"The family loved this. Of course with everything, you put your own spin on it according to your household pallet. I only added and didn't remove anything the recipe called for. I doubled the recipe (large house of 9). I added 1 onion, old bay seasoning, red pepper flakes, frozen and squeeze drained spinach, also topped it with cheddar cheese. It was absolutely amazing! Only downfall it was pretty pricey but worth it."
"An excellent recipe! I used a bit more shrimp, as my family is not fond of scallops. Fish cubes for stock is a good subsitution for both the chicken stock and clam juice. If you do that cut back on the salt. This is a rich and satisfying meal. It looks and tastes sophisticated. Freezes well too."
"Very very good... definitely making this again!"
"can this be made the night before and cooked the next day as I often do regular lasagna?"
"Fantastic!!! I expected this dish to be delicious based on the standing 5 star rating, but it was even better than I expected. Could hold it's own against any seafood lasagna I've eaten at restaurants. Agree with other comments - great for Christmas, or special occasion meals, as it is really rich and can be pricy. My recipe adaptations based on seafood avail. in KS: ~2.25 lbs. king crab legs* (not Alaskan), 2 lbs. sea scallops (since they were almost half as expensive as bay, and are more tender. Cut into smaller pieces.), 2lbs frozen wild salad shrimp (Costco). Using the fresh crab was well worth it, once I was done cracking it all - the flavor was amazing! I added 6-8 roasted garlic cloves to the sauce as well. My entire family loved this lasagna, including kids and some pickier people. I will absolutely make this again! *Actually less expensive per lb. than canned crab. I also doubled the recipe as others and so glad I did. I also used DeLallo Organic Italian Whole Wheat Lasagna (no boil) noodles which are my go to for lasagna."
