Lemon Butter Herb Sauce

I actually wanted a sweet, but rich flavor to go on a seafood medley pasta dish I had in mind, so I'll post the sauce I made and then also the medley ingredients if you feel like making the rest of it with it.

(I'm sure the sauce would be lovely over any other kind of fish with rice, too. I'll try it that way some time this week.....)
Lemon Butter Herb Sauce for Seafood recipes

1/4 cup butter (not margarine---EVER)
1/4 cup lemon juice (from a lemon or jar is fine)
1/4 cup fresh parsley
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp minced garlic (not powder)
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (optional)

Melt all together in a sauce pan
Pour over seafood or toss into pasta/seafood medley


Spaghetti noodles prepared as usual (enough to feed 4-6 people for this recipe)
4-6 cups raw shrimp, mussels, calamari, and scallops (not each, just mixed together)
2 cups broccoli, carrots, and onions chopped (steaming in separate pan)

When spaghetti noodles have about 5 minutes left until soft, place the seafood into boiling water and cook for the remaining 5 minutes of spaghetti cooking.

Drain spaghetti and toss with vegetables and seafood.
Pour lemon butter herb sauce over the mix of foods and serve hot!
Add more salt and pepper to taste!
