Seafood Diablo with white sauce and tortellini

Sheila Hinds


husband,took me to Monterrey for our 18th anniversary. We found a wonderful restaurant by the bay. I wish I could remember the name,but what I ordered for dinner will stay with me always. It was called Seafood Diablo in a white sauce with tortellini. It was fabulous,my husband asked if I could duplicate it. I have made this recipe many times,and believe I have accomplished it, after gaining 5lbs.

  1. A side suggestion: keep a few peaces of uncooked fish,salmon has a stronger flavor for later, if needed
    In a deep pan add a 1/3cup of water and add seafood to simmer for 10 minutes.The purposes of this method is to draw the flavor from the seafood into the water.Remove seafood from pan and set aside for later, be sure to not break up fish to much.
  2. Now this part is essential to this recipe!the water should have a Strong flavor. If not add those few peaces of uncooked fish and simmer 5 minutes more,remove those peaces and set aside.
  3. To flavored water add 1/4 cup heavy cream and enough Parmesan cheese to thicken the sauce.If you need more sauce add remaining heavy cream.The Parmesan cheese can be added as well,or when serving your dish.
  4. Cook your multicolor tortellini to package directions drain and set aside for later.Now that you have made your sauce,gently add seafood and tortellini to mixture. Sprinkle top with Parmesan cheese and serve. I serve hot bread and salad with this dish. enjoy!
