Easy Shellfish Dinner

My daughter and I were cruising through the grocery store yesterday contemplating what we wanted for dinner. We hit the seafood section and she saw clams and said "Daddy are those the things with the little chewy piece of meat on the shell after you eat the clam" (she's talking about the abductor muscle). I said yes and she said "can we have those for dinner"? Well, clams are a favorite of mine as well, so I obliged. We already had a 2lb bag of frozen jumbo shrimp at home and leftover baked cheesy potatoes my wife made the night before, so this was a simple dinner!

1 bag of Mahogany Clams...$6.99 for 50 clams, not a bad price and none were dead! Put into a pot with a little water and steamed for about 5 minutes, or until they all had opened.

While the clams were steaming, I prepared the broth for the shrimp. 1 can of beer, 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar and alot of Old Bay Seafood Seasoning.

Brought to a boil and added the shrimp along with additional Old Bay!

Brought to a boil and the shrimp are done!

Shrimp are done.

Clams are done! Look at all that great clam broth!! YUM

My first of 3 plates. No I didn't clarify the butter, so what! I also had some homemade cocktail sauce not pictured.

Re: Easy Shellfish Dinner

You don't need clarified butter for a feast like that!

I hope this isn't negative!

Re: Easy Shellfish Dinner

Monkeys love shellfish! Ms. Monkey is a big fan of the beer/butter/old bay shrimp boil. Actually goes Ape $hit on me if I don't use a dark Medelo beer when I make them. I like to add a little lemon or lime juice too. I also put the shrimp in, peeled, prior to boiling and let the boil come up slowly. That way the shrimp marinade some as they come to a boil.

As always Larry, looks real good.

Re: Easy Shellfish Dinner

Never had calms like that either. Had them fried lots of times. How close do they taste to oysters?

Re: Easy Shellfish Dinner

Outstanding dinner Larry. Growing up in Washington state, we often had seafood for dinner and clams were one of our favorites. The best part was drinking the warm clam nectar my mom would serve us in a nice warm mug. Thanks for posting and reminding me of my childhood. Clams will be on the Keil menu soon.
