Sauted Scallops & Shrimp In Whole Grain Mustard Cream

Tonight  I wanted to have something comfortable, belly warming, traditional, for dinner.  I realize that seafood in mustard sauce might not sound traditional to some younger folks out there, but when I was a youngster, fish and other seafood in various types of mustard sauce was a commonly found item on many restaurants friday menu. Even at home, “Fish mit Senfsauce” was a typical friday dinner item, usually served with “Salzkartoffeln” (boiled potatoes).
