A.K.A. Mussels and Clams with Shrimp…. clever huh!
I made it a point not to raise picky eaters and I have succeeded (except for the occasional raw tomato).
1 pound of mussels
1 pound clams
1 pound of extra large shrimp
6 garlic cloves thinly sliced
1 whole chopped yellow onion
1 stick butter
1 cup chicken stock
1 cup dry white wine
Salt and pepper to taste
Crushed red pepper
Saute the onion and thinly sliced garlic in the butter and some olive oil
Add the chicken stock and white wine
Add the salt and pepper and crushed red pepper
Saute the shrimp and once pink remove the shrimp only from the pan
Add the cleaned up mussels and clams, keeping the heat on medium
Cover the pot and watch the mussels and clams pop open
Once they’re all open add the shrimp back in and sprinkle the top with the chopped parsley and squeeze the fresh lemon on top of it as well
I serve this with a tossed salad too and usually some oven roasted tomatoes (olive oil and salt).
It’s really a simple delicious meal that almost anyone would eat and when the bread soaks up the juices it really just closes the circle and makes it all so heavenly.
Like I said Tuxedos with Roses and some crusty bread, who wouldn’t come running to the dinner table.
