“This recipe is saved for the holidays or special occasions at my house. The rich sherry-cream sauce blankets this elegant combination of delicately flavored seafood and vegetables. I really love the individual presentation with the puff pastry shells. For starters or normal-sized appetites, one is enough, but for my DS and what used to be my husband, now my ex, 2 or 3 was a serving for them. So it is hard to state a serving size....I'd say between 6 and 10 depending on appetite sizes.”
