Low Carb Shrimp & Crab Thermidor

Shrimp & Crab ThermidorNot lots to say about this recipe. At one time lobster thermidor was all the rage in fancy dancy expensive restaurants around the country and for some reason it has mostly fallen out or favor-probably because of the costs of the ingredients.  But now…you can make it yourself and save tons of $$$. Yes, shrimp and crab are still expensive but not nearly what it would be in your favorite local eatery.

So, make this a special meal on a Sunday and of course you can dazzle dinner guests with it.
