Oysters, Clams and Mussels Oh My

Started with some simple grilled oysters. Plopped them directly on grill until they popped open and ate them. Delicious.

Next up put my large CI pot on grill, added onion and a tablespoon of EVOO and cooked until just translucent. Threw in garlic, then Spanish chorizo, then tomatoes in rapid order. Added 1.5 cups of a white Bordeaux and fresh basil. Added mussels and clams and removed when everything opened.

Served with French bread.


I under cooked the clams a bit; they apparently take much longer than mussels, I'll know next time.

    Oh man, you are so singing my song. Love Fruite De Mar. Just a great looking dish. Tell me you made garlic bread on the side. Oh my soooooo gooooood. if you really want to go nuts. Make a nice pot of angel hair pasta, and dump the entire contents of you pan into it after you drain the pasta. Oh man I love that stuff. I live in Arizona now and seafood is a frozen facsimile. Really miss the good stuff. Great cook, Throw in some squid if it is available. It makes a really great combination of flavors with the mussels and clams.

    @keepervodeflame‌ dang, I should have made garlic bread, I served a simple French baguette but garlic bread would have been even better.

    Pic # 6 is money!! I'd dive right in there. Diving into clams is OK, isn't it? :-*

  • Almost as good as the clams and mussels, is dipping a hunk of really garlicky bread into the juice. I could eat a whole baguette that way. It also makes doing the dishes a snap.
