Ideas for LC meal with frozen "Seafood Medley" ??

Found this yesterday at the local grocery store... I LOVE seafood so I snatched it up.

However, I am not creative and I am not sure what to eat this with!! Sauces? veggies? Any ideas??

Thanks!

What's in it? Probably a nice cioppino or bouillabaisse would be really good!

Oh darn, the pictures did not work! It is calamari, mussels, crab, and shrimp.

OK, I've seen that one before.

The only problem I have with this type of medley is that those things cook at differing rates! The squid is either VERY fast, or cooked for an extended time - anything in between turns it to rubber bands.

The shrimp and mussels will be about the same; if the crab is already cooked (most is), it only needs to be heated. Shrimp gets dry and tough when overcooked too.

SO if it was ME I'd break it down to its component parts, cook each to its own perfect doneness, then combine with a nice rich cioppino broth, or even a puttanesca sauce over Dreamfields pasta or spaghetti squash.

Do what Char suggested and then make a scampi sauce using olive oil, butter, a splash of white wine (optional), fresh minced garlic, pepper and parsley. When the sauce is heated through and the garlic is a bit sauteed, add the cooked seafood, heat through and then put over broccoli, cauliflower, green beans or a veggie mix you like!!

YUMMY!!!
