Recipe Notes

Tips and Variations

  • Sprinkle servings with fresh chopped parsley or chives.

  • Seafood Newburg: Make the dish with half shrimp and half seared scallops or a combination of shrimp with chunks of mild white fish, lobster, scallops, or crab.
  • Replace the sherry with dry white wine.
  • If you don't have half-and-half, use 1 cup of milk and 1 cup of whipping cream.
  • Spoon some of the shrimp Newburg over eggs Benedict for an elegant brunch dish.
