Creamy Dove and Shrimp with Noodles

Creamy Dove and Shrimp with Noodles
October finds lots of fishermen wandering the fields for doves and bay shrimpers are making some of their best catches of the year. This was my inspiration for creating a spicy dish that included dove breasts and shrimp. The combination turned out delicious and has become a favorite way to celebrate the bounty of the fields, sky and bays around our dinner table.

10 dove breasts, filleted into medallions
30 shrimp tails (20-count) peeled and deveined
3 tablespoons jalapeo pepper, remove seeds and chop
1 tablespoon finely minced garlic
1 medium onion, halved and sliced into rings
1 package cream cheese
2 cups chicken broth
2 tablespoons olive oil
6 strips thin sliced bacon
1 package egg noodles

-Fry bacon very crispy, set aside to cool, crumble.
-Add dove breast medallions and shrimp to skillet and saut in bacon drippings until fully cooked. -Remove shrimp and dove from skillet and set aside.
-Add olive oil, onion, garlic and jalapeo to skillet, saut until onion becomes opaque, add bacon crumbles and continue cooking for one minute.
-Add cream cheese and chicken broth, cook until mixture becomes smooth and creamy, about five minutes.
-Prepare noodles per package directions and drain.
-Place noodles on dinner plates and cover with sauce, top with dove medallions and shrimp.
