  • 1/2 diced green pepper
  • 2 tbsp diced garlic
  • butter

In a large sauce pan, combine garlic and onions with butter and olive oil. Let sizzle and add shrimp, scallops, peppers, mushrooms, salt and pepper. Sauté for 3 minutes. Add mixed sauce seasoning. Eyeball for color (usually 3-5 shakes). Mix thoroughly.

Add white wine and let it cook down for 5 minutes on medium heat. Towards the end, add crab, crawfish, and heavy whipping cream. Mix well. Add more sauce seasoning if you want it spicier. Put the heat on low and let it simmer while stirring around the edges until it is reduced to the proper thickness. Serve with angel hair pasta.
