In the heart of South Dakota, where the land stretches far and wide, the lack of fresh seafood doesn't deter a culinary enthusiast. Armed with creativity and a can-do attitude (and canned seafood), I embarked on a shellfish-inspired journey to create a Seafood Alfredo that'll transport you to the coastal flavors of North Carolina. Prepare your taste buds for a delightful performance of canned tiny shrimp, clams, and lump crab meat, perfectly choreographed with a luscious homemade Alfredo sauce.

The Seafood Extravaganza


  • Lump Crab Meat
  • Canned Tiny Shrimp
  • Canned Clams (No Shell)
  • 1 TBS Minced Garlic
  • 1 TSP Lemon Juice
  • Half stick of butter
  • Salt (To Taste)
  • Pepper (To Taste)
  • Italian Seasoning (To Taste)

The Dance:

  1. Melt half a stick of butter in a medium-sized saucepan over medium heat.
  2. Add minced garlic, allowing it to sauté and infuse the butter with flavor.
  3. After a minute or two, introduce a splash of freshness with lemon juice.
  4. Toss in lump crab meat, tiny shrimp, and canned clams, creating a seafood symphony.
  5. Over medium heat, cook the ingredients, stirring frequently, and season to taste with salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning.
  6. Let the mixture simmer on low heat, stirring occasionally, allowing the flavors to meld.

The Creamy Serenade


  • 3 TBS Butter
  • 1 Cup Heavy Cream
  • 3 TBS Minced Garlic
  • 1 1/2 Cup Fresh Parmesan Cheese
  • Salt (To Taste)
  • Pepper (To Taste)

The Crescendo:

  1. In a separate saucepan, melt butter over medium heat.
  2. Add heavy whipping cream and let it dance for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Incorporate minced garlic, cooking for an additional two minutes.
  4. Introduce fresh Parmesan cheese, whisking until the cheese becomes one with the sauce.
  5. For a thicker sauce, add a teaspoon of flour to the butter mixture before introducing other ingredients.
  6. Once the Alfredo sauce reaches perfection, invite the seafood medley into the pan, creating a union of flavors.

The Grand Finale

  1. Boil water in a pot and cook your preferred noodles (fettuccini works wonders).
  2. Strain the noodles and serve them into bowls.
  3. Generously ladle the seafood Alfredo sauce over the noodles, creating a crescendo of flavors.
  4. For a final touch, sprinkle a little Parmesan on top, and your masterpiece is ready for the grand finale.

Conclusion: A Seafood Symphony Worth Savoring

Dive into a dish that marries the heartiness of the Midwest with the coastal charm of fresh seafood. This Seafood Alfredo is a testament to the versatility of canned delights and the creativity that can turn a humble meal into a symphony of flavors. Gather around the table, indulge in the melody of tastes, and let the Seafood Alfredo take center stage in your culinary repertoire.
