Recipe by charlotte
"I made this for Easter and got a family request to make it again for Mother's Day. These amounts are for the family, so it makes quite a bit. The time took longer for me because of the amount of shrimp I had to peel, but if you cut this recipe down, it won't take you so long. This time I also included crawfish. Oh ya'll gotta try it! Enjoy!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

This is Charlotte and I should have mentioned that the reason I cooked the seafood in the stock in the directions and then removed was to be sure the shrimp and crawfish had a good flavor. Nothing worse than bland seafood. Also didn't want to over cook them.
As I said in cook's notes, you could cook seperately but be sure to add good seasoning. I also prefer using as few pots as possible.
I much prefer angel hair pasta with this recipe. I used 1/2 & 1/2 but I think the recipe can do without milk. The trick to this recipe is all of the herbs & spices, they really brighten the recipe. I used Progesso© brand Lobster Sauce (3 12 oz cans) as seafood stock. And yes cook the seafood separately to keep from over-cooking it. Good Recipe!!
