admin's picture
  Chicken broth 1 Cup (16 tbs) (Preferably Reduced-Sodium)
  Sherry/Dry white wine / chicken broth 3 Tablespoon
  Cayenne pepper 1 Pinch
  Garlic 2 Clove (10 gm), minced
  Scallions 4 , coarsely chopped (Green And White Parts Kept Separate)
  Medium shrimp 1⁄2 Pound, shelled and deveined
  Sea scallops 1⁄2 Pound, halved if large
  Unsalted butter 3 Tablespoon
  Flour 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Low fat milk 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Canned crabmeat 6 Ounce, drained (1 Can)

1. In a medium saucepan, combine the broth, sherry, cayenne, garlic, and scallion whites. Cover and bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
2. Add the shrimp and scallops, and cook just until the liquid returns to a boil, then remove from the heat. Reserving the broth, use a slotted spoon to transfer the shrimp, scallops, and scallion whites to a plate. Cover the seafood mixture loosely with foil and set aside.
3. In another medium saucepan, warm the butter over medium heat until melted. Stir in the flour and cook, stirring, until the flour is no longer visible, about 1 minute. Gradually whisk in the reserved broth until smooth. Whisk in the milk until well combined.
4. Return the shrimp, scallops, and scallion whites to the sauce. Gently stir in the crab-meat and scallion greens. Cook, stirring gently, until the seafood is just cooked through, about 3 minutes.
