  • Melt remaining 1 tablespoon butter in the skillet, and stir in shrimp and scallops; cook, turning, until the shrimp are pink, about 3 minutes. With a slotted spoon, remove shrimp and scallops, and set aside.

  • In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, black pepper, and clam juice.

  • Pour clam juice mixture into the skillet, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until mixture thickens. Reduce heat to low, and stir in sour cream. Return mushrooms, shrimp, and scallops to the skillet; mix in sherry, and cook to heat through. Sprinkle with parsley.

I disagree with the previous reviewer I LOVED this recipe. LOVED LOVED LOVED. The only reason it got four stars is because scallops AND shrimp made this an expensive dish to make (at least for my pocketbook). I had no trouble with the water content or thickening and I really have trouble believing 2 tbs of sherry would thin this dish out as suggested previously. This is a great dish and I definitely will fix again. Read More

I found the water content of this recipe too high unless you pat dry the mushrooms and the shellfish the water in them will throw the thickness for a loop. I would add another tbsp of flour or be sure to cook the clam mixture for longer to thicken it quite well. The sherry at the end also thins it out quite a bit. The first bite was very disappointing but it grew on me as I ate it. I probably would not make it again. Read More

I had some scallops and shrimp and was looking for a good way to cook them. I am watching my weight so I substituted fat free sour cream for the real sour cream. I also sauteed onion and shallots with the mushrooms. I added paprika to give it a kick. We put it over whole wheat pasta and some mushy peas on the side. It was delish. My husband is back in the kitchen polishing it off right now. This is a keeper! Read More

Very very tasty. I added garlic and onions to the mushrooms when I satueed them. I made sure to drain the seafood well. I also added one TBS of flour so the sauce was thicker. Fattening but excellent. Read More

I took the suggestions of other reviews and really thought that I would like this alot. I however did not like it. Was it edible and my family said that they had worse but we all agree that I need to find a better recipe for scallops. Read More

I did add a small onion and a clove of garlic because it seemed like that was what that the reviewers that liked it the most did. It came out pretty good but not great. I feel like it was missing some ingredient that could push it over the top to great but I couldn't figure out what it was. If scallops and shrimp weren't so expensive I'd make it again and play with the recipe but being as they are so pricey I'm going to stick with recipes that I know will turn out fantastic. Read More

Sautéed the shrooms with shallots and added paprika to the sauce. Wife and daughter each snarfed two helpings down in minutes. This is a keeper. Read More
