I was inspired one evening and developed this recipe on the fly. I received a dozen long stem roses the next morning with a note that said simply "Can I come back and lick the plates".

Serves:  4

Serve With:  Caution!

In a deep, no stick fry pan, heat the butter and oil.  Add seasonings, garlic, wine, chutney, mushrooms and onion and sauté until liquid is thick (approx. 5 minutes).  Add the shrimp and sauté another 3 minutes.  Add the crab meat, tomato, Swiss cheese and cream and sauté 1 minute longer to heat and melt cheese.  Serve immediately on a bed of rice that has been cooked with raisins and sprinkled with slivered almonds
