Remarks
This recipe can be varied using other types of shellfish: mussels, scallops, clams, etc.

If the sauce is a bit too rich for your taste, try adding a drizzle of vinegar or lemon juice at the end; the hint of acidity will help to balance the velvety richness of the cream and cheese.
Keeping
Should be eaten right away.
