This sounds good, I need ideas on how to fix seafood differently since it is really not a favorite of mine but with pasta, etc, sounds interesting. Congratulation on being Faith Reaper's last "Hug" recipient!

Randomcreative--yes, I know what you mean! I do the same thing. We all know we need to eat more seafood but it is hard to think what to do. I developed this one when I bought some mussels on impulse and then needed a quick dinner. It was such a hit with my husband that it has become a regular.

I tend to make the same seafood recipes over and over again and am always looking for new options that aren't too complicated. This definitely fits the bill. Thanks for the great recipe!
