“I indulge my seafood taste alone when my husband has a late meeting or event. He will *not* eat seafood (canned tuna hiding in cheese sauce or the finest, freshest and mildest of real seafood) I keep shrimp, scallops, and other fishy food in baggies in the freezer - they can be quickly thawed under cold water when needed. This recipe is hugely flexible. --onion, bell pepper and mushrooms with oregano on pasta (topped with parmesan) for an Italian dish; --include black olives, serve w/rice & top with feta for a Greek flavor --zucchini and some frozen corn, cilantro, chili powder and wrap in a flour tortilla w/jack cheese for a Southwest flair. Do your own creative things with curry powder or fresh parsley, dill or basil.”
