Shrimp and Scallop Mousse

Makes about 2 cups of mousse

2 tablespoons unsalted butter

1 medium shallot, finely minced

1/4 pound shrimp, peeled and deveined

1/2 pound small bay scallops

1 1/2 tablespoons lime juice

2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives

4 ounces cream cheese, softened

Salt and pepper, to taste

About 1 to 2 tablespoons Sriracha or hot sauce

1. Place butter in a large sauté pan and melt over medium heat.

2. When butter is hot, add the shallot to the pan. Cook until translucent and softened (about 5 minutes).

3. Add shrimp and scallops to the pan in a single layer and sauté just until cooked through (about 5 to 8 minutes). Remove the pan from the heat and let mixture cool.

4. Spoon cooled shrimp and scallops into the bowl of a food processor, discarding any additional liquid left in the pan. Add lime juice, chives, cream cheese, and Sriracha to the bowl; process until well blended and smooth. Season with salt, pepper, and additional Sriracha if desired.

Tip: To serve the mousse, pipe it onto crackers or prebaked tart shells.
