Shrimp and Scallop Stroganoff

Hey guys -- I'm here today to share the recipe for the shrimp and scallop stroganoff I fixed on Valentine's Day.  It had literally been about 16 years since I fixed this recipe and I was hoping it was as good as I remembered it being -- and it definitely was!

This recipe has been in my recipe box for so long I honestly can't remember exactly where it originated from -- I'm thinking it was a Good Housekeeping magazine.  Now that I've dusted it off and exposed Eric to this wonderful blend of flavors, I have a feeling we'll be having it again before 16 years pass us by.

1 lb. jumbo or large shrimp
1 lb. sea scallops
1/2 lb. mushrooms
3 Tbsp. butter
2 Tbsp. dry sherry
2 Tbsp. flour
1/2 tsp. pepper
1 envelope chicken bouillon (I used 2 chicken bouillon cubes)
8 oz. sour cream
2 tsp. parsley (garnish)

Here's what you do:

Peel shrimp and slice mushrooms.

Cook shrimp and scallops in 2 tablespoons of butter until shrimp are a light pink.  Remove from skillet.

Add 1 tablespoon butter to skillet and cook mushrooms and sherry until mushrooms are tender.

Stir together flour, bouillon, pepper and 1 cup of water.  Add to mushrooms mix.  Stir.  Let cook until mixture boils and thickens.

Stir in sour cream.

Add in shrimp and scallops.  Do not boil.  Serve over noodles when warm.

The whole process took about 20 minutes from start to finish.  I served it over egg noodles.  If I were going to do anything different, I would probably add a few  more mushrooms.

Eat and enjoy!

Look at those scrumptious scallops and shrimp!

  1. That looks really yummy. I love scallops and haven't had them in a while.

  2. You know, I have never had scallops. For some reason, I have always been afraid of them for some reason. I do love shrimp, and this recipe sounds amazing, so I may just give them a try! Thanks for sharing such a delicious recipe!

  3. This looks so good! I've never cooked with sherry. I'm pinning for later. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Shrimp and scallops are two of my favourite foods!!! I love the sound of this recipe although I would have to opt out of the cream due to dairy issues. I actually just love them simple, sauteed in butter with some saffron ;-)

  5. Never made any stroganoff of any sort or even eaten any outside the usual beef stroganoff but would definitely love to one day. This looks delicious

  6. Yum that looks so good. I haven't ever made anything like this before. I bet my husband would absolutely love this!

  7. It looks so yummy! :) That's so cool that you have recipes that you can come back to 16 years later and they're just as good are you remember them. I feel like my tastes change so much over time, I wonder if I'll like the same things 16 years from now. it must just be that good.
