Recipe type: main course
Serves: 10
  • 3 pounds fresh mussels,rinsed
  • 12-20 fresh clams,rinsed
  • 1 pound fresh shrimp,shelled and deveined
  • 6 oz calamari-tubes(sliced) and tentacles
  • 6 to 8 fresh scallops
  • ¾ cup olive oil
  • ½ cup Roasted Red pepper,chopped I used jarred peppers
  • 4 garlic cloves,minced
  • 3 lemons,juiced and zested
  • A handful of chopped Cilantro or Italian Parsley
  • 1 tablespoon capers
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons dried Thyme and Oregano
  • Greek seasoning,lemon pepper seasoning and garlic seasoning to taste
  • Red Pepper flakes to taste
  1. Using your favorite steaming method,steam the seafood taking care not to overcook it. Drain and cool.
  2. I use a simple steaming basket that I bought for about $5 many years ago.
  3. While the seafood is cooling,make the dressing.
  4. Place all the seafood in a large bowl. Because there are so many mussel and clam shells,add the meat from the shells to the salad but discard about half of the mussel and clams shells.
  5. Toss with the dressing and chill until ready to serve.
