A true delicacy at a reasonable price, and easy to prepare.
One pound littleneck clams
One pound mussels
One pound shrimp
Half of a red onion, sliced thin
Celery, sliced thin
Mushrooms, sliced thin
White wine, one bottle
Butter, one stick
Noodles of choice
First, prepare the shellfish by removing the shells from the shrimp, pulling the beards off the mussels, and scrubbing the shells of the clams and mussels with a firm kitchen brush. Set aside.
Bring a half bottle of white wine and a stick of butter to a boil in a large pot. Add a tablespoon of minced garlic, stirring well. Pour the rest of the wine into glasses for you and your companion, and drink while you cook. You'll need another bottle for dinner.
Add the seafood and veggies to the pot and steam over medium-high heat for at least 5 minutes or until all the clam and mussel shells have opened, stirring occasionally. Prepare the noodles per package instructions.
Pour the sauce from the seafood pot over the noodles, and stir well. Distrubute the noodles and seafood into bowls, and serve immediately. Amazingly good.
