Fish & Shrimp Linguine

Does it really have to be a cold winter night to enjoy a warm plate of comfort food?  It's certainly more enjoyable, but not necessary.  Fish and Shrimp Linguine is just one of those dishes. I think this one even took my husband by surprise.  He's not one to normally tolerate leftovers (some things just aren't as good the second time around) but he sure didn't mind eating these leftovers.  Best of all-for an added plus-this dish is nutritious and diet friendly!  This serves a family of four.

2 TBS Olive Oil
2 lbs Fresh White Fish such as Cat Fish or Trout
2 Cups Finely Chopped Onion
4 Cloves Garlic Minced
4 Cups Broccoli
3 Cups Salad Size Shrimp
2 TBS Fresh Ground Pepper
2 TBS Seasoned Salt
3 oz Fat Free Cream Cheese
4 Heaping TSP Flour
4 to 5 Cups Fat Free Milk

1 16oz Pkg Linguine

Heat olive oil in a large skillet on medium low heat.  Add loosely chopped fish, onion, garlic and broccoli cooking for 15 minutes or until fish becomes flaky stirring occasionally.  Stir in Shrimp cooking for another five minutes until shrimp is pink.  Add Salt and Pepper.  Divide Cream Cheese into four sections and add to fish and shrimp.  Stir Constantly until Cream Cheese is melted.  Spinkle in flour stirring constantly until well blended with fish.  Slowly whisk milk into fish until  it becomes a nice creamy sauce.  Continue adding milk until sauce is as thick, or thin, as you prefer.  Remove from heat and set aside to slightly cool.

Add 2 TBS of salt to six cups of boiling water.  Add linguine and allow to rapidly boil for 10 to 15 minutes or until done.  Pour pasta in a straining dish, but do not rinse.  Place 3/4 cup of linguine on a serving place and top with sauce.  Serve with freshly toasted garlic bread.
