creamy pasta marinara

shirlene has been going on about seafood pasta everytime she sees my basil. she goes on about it, but we all have yet to see it materialise.....and if she wants to make it, she had better make it while there is still basil in the garden.
nevertheless, i should thank her for her suggestion, without which i might not have thought to cook this.
just a warning, this dish is mega rich and not for the fainthearted.

30 grams butter
1 onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, finely minced
1 cup dry white wine
1 cup cream
300 grams peeled, uncooked prawns
300 grams scallops
300 grams salmon, sliced
salt and pepper
500 grams pasta
chopped fresh herbs, such as, parsley or basil

heat butter in a large pan and cook the onion and garlic until soft. gradually stir in the wine and cream. allow to boil and thicken. add rinsed seafood and simmer uncovered until cooked through.
cook pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water until al dente; drain.
pour the pasta into the pan of sauce and coat the pasta in the sauce. place in serving bowls and pour any remaining sauce over the pasta. sprinkle with the herbs.
serve 4
