Macaroni Grill Baked Creamy Seafood


  • 4 Tbsp butter
  • 1 cup baby scallops, rinsed and drained (about 8 oz.)
  • 3 Tbsp flour
  • 2 cups half-and-half
  • 1 1/2 cups Asiago cheese
  • 2 cups medium, peeled, shelled and deveined cooked shrimp
  • 1 (6 oz.) can chopped clams, well drained
  • 1 to 2 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
  • Oil for deep frying
  • 1/2 of a 12 oz package wonton skins


In a large skillet, melt 1 Tbsp butter. Add scallops and stir fry over high heat until just cooked through; set aside in bowl. In same skillet, melt remaining 3 Tbsp butter over medium heat. Whisk in flour until smooth and bubbly. Cook and stir 1 minute. Whisk in half-and-half and continue whisking until mixture comes to a boil. Boil 1 minute, whisking, until bubbly. Turn off the heat. Add Asiago cheese, stirring until melted. Stir in the scallops, shrimp and clams. Spoon into a 9-inch glass pie plate. Sprinkle with the Parmesan cheese. Bake in a preheated 350° F oven for about 15 minutes, until the top is golden brown.

Meanwhile, heat plenty of oil in a wok or deep fryer to 375° F. Fry 3 or 4 wonton skins at a time, a few seconds on each side, until just golden. Drain on paper towels. Use wontons as chips for dipping into baked sea-food appetizer.

NOTE: If you don't feel inclined to fry the wonton skins to make chips, the seafood appetizer is also delicious served with tortilla or pita chips or crackers of your choice.
