Scallops and Shrimp bake

Well I guess I should call it Imitation crab and shrimp bake.
we didn't have any scallops and a little of the imitation crab left so we used that instead. It was good but I bet with the scallops it would have been really good.
This was really fast and easy to do something we are looking for in this heat.

1/2 lb sea scallops( I bet the bay would be better they are sweeter just my opinion.)
1/2 lb shrimp pealed.
1/2 chicken or vegetable stock.
1/2 cup white wine
3 Tablespoons olive oil
2 cloves garlic chopped
3 Tablespoons onion or one shallot chopped
1 lemon calls or Meyer but we used regular.
1 Tablespoon chopped cilantro
1 Tablespoon chopped Italian parsley
8 oz linguini (we only had spagetti
salt and pepper to taste
3/4 cup crumbled feta.
red pepper to taste (optional)

Saute in skillet onions and garlic over med heat. Then add stock,wine,lemon juice,parsley and cilantro. Bring to boil.
Add sea scallops first if using. then shrimp a couple minutes later.
If using shrimp and fake crab add together and cook till shrimp turn pink. Do not over cook or shrimp will be like rubber.
Salt qand pepper to taste we also threw in some red pepper
Pour in to a casserole dish (we used a small one)
Crumble feta over top and place in oven on broil for about 5 minutes or till cheese is browned.

We luv seafood. I think we could eat every night.

Rice/pasta - either one, every night too.

We wish we lived closer to the ocean but then we would have to worry about hurricanes.
