Shrimp and scallops are lightly sauteed with herbs, tomatoes, garlic, white wine, and olive oil, then simmered in a savory, creamy marinara sauce for a weeknight dinner that'll make it feel like the weekend. This dish is best when served over pasta or polenta, and goes great with a glass of white wine. You won't believe how quick and easy this fancy-looking Shrimp and Scallops in Creamy Marinara is to make!

Recipe Notes

I bought the shrimp pre-peeled and deveined. Your fish market may do this for you!
You may also want to serve this with some (gluten free!) garlic bread to soak up the sauce!
