Creamy Seafood with Saffron

I'm been looking high and low for a Latin's creamy seafood's dish recipe but sadly I dunno the name of this dish.We celebrated Father's Day dinner at one of the local Latin's restaurant nearby.Hubby ordered a creamy seafood dish and it's taste so great!! I forget to look at the name..Anyway,I created my own Creamy Seafood dish and hubby gave thumb up except the coconut milk.He said I shouldn't add coconut milk into the sauce because the flavor is too strong,over taking the fresh seafood taste in the dish..If you're are up to challenging to try Latin's dish,you might try this Cream Seafood dish!!

1 lbs clam,wash and soaked in salt water for hours before use or you can use frozen clean clam
10 large shrimp,shelled and deviened
12 oz fresh salmon
5-6 large scallop

For the sauce:
2 tbsp oil
4-5 cloves garlic,peeled and chopped
2 cups whole milk or half and half
200 ml coconut milk*optional* if you opt out coconut milk add in more milk
I packet Sazón with Coriander and Annatto
1 packet Sazón with Azafrán
2 tbsp Chicken Bouillon powder
2 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp salt
5-6 thread saffron
1 cup frozen mix vegetable
1 small onion,peel and sliced
some cilantro for garnish

1:Heat large deep skillet at medium high heat with oil,add in garlic,fry until light brown,then add in milk ,coconut milk ,sugar,chicken bouillon ,salt and both Sazon seasoning.Increase the heat to high.
2:When the sauce is bubbling boil,add in saffron,clam,shrimp,salmon,scallop ,onion and frozen mix vegetables.Check the seasoning.
3:Cook for 5-10 minutes or until it's sauce is bubbling boil again.Remove skillet immediately from heat.*do not over cook seafood and fish*
4:Dish out,garnish wt cilantro and serve warm with rice.


You can use any type of seafood and fish.But I found salmon taste really creamy and soft with this sauce.
