  • tablespoon
  • fork
  • slotted spoon
  • heatproof dish
  • oven / broiler


For the sauce/base:

  • 8 tbsp butter
  • 6 tbsp flour (sprouted flour and gluten-free cassava flour work pretty well. The sauce is thicker with the cassava so it won't simmer like the original version when heated on low, but it will work)
  • 1 ½ cups white or yellow onion (diced)
  • 1 ½ cups organic white wine
  • 1 tsp unrefined sea salt
  • 1.5 cups cream


  • 2 tbsp butter (you can sub grass-fed ghee or coconut oil)
  • 1 lb shrimp (peeled and deveined)
  • 12 oz mini scallops (or chopped lobster/crawfish tail meat)
  • 2 tbsp garlic (minced)
  • 1 tbsp Cajun seasoning (see recipe below)
  • 2 cups mushrooms (sliced)
  • ½ cup diced green onions
  • 2 cups spinach leaves (tightly packed)
  • 8-16 oz monterey jack or cheddar cheese
  • Crusty sourdough bread (for dipping)

Cajun Seasoning:


To make the sauce:

  • Melt 8 tablespoons butter in a saucepan. Whisk in flour and chopped onion - saute for 1-2 minutes. Slowly stir in wine and whisk until smooth. Add salt and allow to simmer on low heat for 7-10 minutes. Add cream and allow to simmer for another five minutes. Remove the pan from heat and set aside.

To make the filling:

  • Season shrimp and oysters with seasonings. In a very large sauce pan, melt 2 tablespoons butter over medium/high heat. Turn the temp down to medium and add shrimp, scallops and cajun seasoning. Saute for about 4-5 minutes, then add spinach, mushrooms, garlic, green onion and salt. Saute until mushrooms and spinach soften, then scoop up everything in the pan with a slotted spoon and fold it in the sauce. If needed warm up the sauce, then pour it into heatproof dish, top with grated cheese, and place under a broiler until cheese melts. Stir the cheese in and add additional salt if desired. Serve with crusty sourdough bread for dipping.
