Enjoy the fun, casual side of seafood with our easy variations on the classic clambake -- big jumbles of steamed clams, lobsters, mussels, corn on the cob, potatoes, and sausage -- or old-fashioned seafood boils. These recipes are perfect for summer entertaining: Simply invite everyone to roll up their sleeves and dig in!
No need to dig a pit in the sand! Steam lobsters, clams, mussels, shrimp, corn on the cob, potatoes, and chorizo in beer, all in the comfort of your kitchen, for a casual summer dinner party.
If you can't fit in a trip to Maine this year, making a meal from foil packets of shrimp, cod, potatoes, and corn may be the next best thing. You can prepare the packets up to a day ahead, refrigerate, and throw onto the grill just before it's time to eat -- a boon to low-key summer entertaining.
