    My husband loved it! I used angel hair pasta. I followed a previous reviewer's suggestion to saute the green onions, mushrooms, and garlic first and then add the seafood so that the seafood wouldn't be overcooked. That worked well. I cut the recipe in half, and I was very glad that I did as it made quite a bit. A little tip that I'll follow when I make this again: if you use angel hair pasta, after you drain it, stir in a very small amount of oil to prevent the pasta from becoming one big clump. By the time I finished with the seafood sauce, I had a huge clump of pasta that was all glued together!  -  15 May 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    One of the best seafood recipes I have ever eaten! Two cost-saving things I did were to use imitation crabmeat in place of lump crabmeat or clawmeat, and bay scallops instead of the larger sea scallops (Beth didn't specify which anyway). Re the procedure, in my opinion, 13-15 min. total is too long to cook all this delicate seafood. So I sauteed the green onions, garlic and mushrooms alone for 5 min., then added all the seafood & cooked just til the shrimp turned completely pink, then proceeded with Step 3. I've made this twice now, both times halfing the recipe, which generously serves 6 people. Thanks, Beth, for the great recipe!  -  11 Aug 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    With a few minor changes, this is a delicious recipe. As per other reviewers, saute vegs and garlic (only 1 tsp minced) first until tender. Then stir in 1/2 the recipe of seafood (i.e., 1/2# of each shrimp, bay scallops, and crabmeat-I used imitation crabmeat). Saute till seafood is cooked. Then stir in the remaining ingredients (I used 1 cup of chicken broth made with granules + 1/3 cup of white wine, 6 T. fresh lemon juice, 1/2 cup of butter). Then, thicken with 2 T. cornstarch to about the same amount of water. Serve over angel hair pasta. This served one normal sized eater plus two big eaters and a little leftover (possibly one small eater serving).  -  26 Jun 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
