Shrimp and Scallops Grand Marnier

I had the most amazing dinner tonight! The main course was the Shrimp and Scallops Grand Marnier. Now, I totally savored this and thought about what I was tasting so I can try to recreate it one day. I brought home a huge doggy bag because the portion was huge!

My interpretation - butter/lemon/garlic/Grand Marnier sauce. Light, not over done, buttery in texture.

Scallops and shrimp tasted like they were prepared in the sauce, or at least spent some time there. Tomatoes and mushrooms were added toward the end, as they we're not over done at all. All this topped linguini, and was topped with spinach. The spinach was not wilted, it looked fresh. Top with grated parmesan cheese.

I paired it with Belini Pinot Grigio and a salad with creamy peppercorn dressing. Mmmmmmmmmm

Now if I can figure out the recipe...

If you are in Tampa/St Petersburg area, I went to Antonio's on Ulmerton. Mmmmmmmmmm

Sounds yummy! (except for the mushrooms since I'm allergic)
