One of my favorite restaurants on the island serves a delicious, creamy seafood lasagna filled with tender, flavorful seafood. Here’s an equally delicious recipe that presents the opportunity to use you family’s favorite fresh, local seafood.

Seafood Lasagna Ingredients

•1 green onion, finely chopped •2 T. canola oil •2 T. plus 1/2 C. butter, divided •1/2 c. chicken broth •1 bottle (8 oz.) clam juice •1 lb. bay scallops •1 lb. uncooked small shrimp, peeled and deveined •1 container (8 oz.) crab meat, chopped •1/4 t. white pepper, divided •1/2 c. all purpose flour •1-1/2 c. 2% milk •1/2 t. salt •1 c. heavy whipping cream •1/2 c. shredded Parmesan cheese, divided •9 lasagna noodles, cooked and drained

Directions

•In a large skillet, saute onion in oil and 2 tablespoons butter until tender. Stir in broth and clam juice; bring to a boil. Add the scallops, shrimp, crab and 1/8 teaspoon pepper; return to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 4-5 minutes or until shrimp turn pink and scallops are firm and opaque, stirring gently. Drain, reserving cooking liquid; set seafood mixture aside. •In a large saucepan, melt the remaining butter; stir in flour until smooth. Combine milk and reserved cooking liquid; gradually add to the saucepan. Add salt and remaining pepper. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. •Remove from the heat; stir in cream and 1/4 cup cheese. Stir 3/4 cup white sauce into the seafood mixture. •Spread 1/2 cup white sauce in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Top with three noodles; spread with half of the seafood mixture and 1-1/4 cups sauce. Repeat layers. Top with remaining noodles, sauce and cheese. •Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown. Let stand for 15 minutes before cutting. Yield: 12 servings.
