Puglian-Style Paella
In this Italian paella recipe, potatoes and other vegetables are layered with mussels and rice and baked in a casserole dish. Be sure to cover the rice completely with vegetables to ensure it cooks properly……

Cioppino
Cioppino is a fish stew traditionally made by Italian fishermen who settled in the North Beach/Fisherman’s Wharf section of San Francisco. It was originally made on fishing boats with whatever fish were at hand. This cioppino comes to us from California chef and cooking teacher John Ash, who has been an advocate for sustainable-food issues for years and has served on the board of advisors of Seafood Watch—the advocacy arm of the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Ash chose a variety of shellfish for this recipe, all of which are Seafood Watch Best Choices or Good Alternatives………….

Quick Paella with Shrimp and Mussels
Our quick take on paella is studded with mussels and shrimp. Traditional paella made with short-grain rice takes a while to cook and can be a bit tricky. Instant brown rice is a great shortcut—what it lacks in authenticity it more than makes up for in convenience. Make sure you seek out saffron, which gives the dish its distinctive yellow color and signature flavor. Serve with: Spinach salad…………

When purchasing Mussels………

Choose to purchase mussels that are alive. Pick mussels that have securely closed shells. Bypass mussels that have their shells open and that will not close. An open shell itself does not mean the mussel is automatically bad. Mussels left undisturbed will open their shells slightly. If a shell is open, tap it. If the mussel closes the shell, it is still alive. If the mussel does not close its shell, throw the mussel away. Buy and Enjoy that Seafood!

Lobster and Corn Chowder
The trick to making this healthy lobster chowder recipe have tons of rich flavor is to start with great fish stock. (The best is often in the freezer case at the supermarket.) Then cook the lobsters in the stock to intensify its flavor. There is no flour added in this healthy soup, so it’s lighter than a typical creamy chowder—plus it’s gluten-free………….

Angry Lobster
In this lobster recipe, pieces of lobster are roasted in a very hot oven with white wine, herbs and crushed red pepper to make a spicy sauce. The angry in the name most likely comes from the hot pepper, but some say cutting up the lobsters sets the tone for this dish. Serve with crusty bread to sop up the sauce and plenty of fresh napkins………….

Scallops with Radicchio-Apple Slaw
The secret to getting a nice golden-brown sear on your scallops is to buy ones that are labeled dry. That means they haven’t been treated with sodium tripolyphosphate (STP), a preservative that helps them retain water, which prevents them from browning well. Serve with roasted potatoes for a complete meal……..

MUSSELS IN TOMATO BROTH WITH BUFFALO CHORIZO
The flavors in this dish complement each other nicely and the chorizo adds a nice spice! The sauce can be made in advance, leaving the steaming of the mussels for the last minute.

Ingredients: (For two servings.)
1 – teaspoon olive oil +
4oz. – Wild Idea Buffalo Chorizo
½ – cup yellow onion, diced
1 – clove garlic, chopped
½ – teaspoon each salt & pepper
1 – teaspoon crushed fennel seeds
1 – teaspoon chili flake *optional
1 – 15oz. can, diced tomatoes
1 – cup white wine
12 to 16 mussels, washed and de-bearded

*Store mussels in the coldest spot in your refrigerator. Place on a damp paper towel in a dish and cover loosely with a damp paper towel. Do not seal in plastic as they will suffocate. Discard any mussels that when pushed shut do not stay shut, or any open or cracked mussels.

Preparation:

1 – In a heavy sauté pan over medium high heat, heat 1-teaspoon olive oil. Crumble sausage into pan and cook until lightly browned, about 4 minutes. Remove sausage from pan, place in bowl and cover with saran. Set aside.
2 – Return pan to heat and add additional oil if needed. Add onion and garlic, sautéing until tender, about 5 minutes.
3 – Add seasonings, tomatoes and wine. Stir to incorporate and bring to a boil. *At this point you could remove from heat, cover and reheat when ready to serve.
4 – Add prepared mussels, cover and allow mussels to steam for 4 minutes. Most all of the shells should have popped open. Discard un-open shells.
5 – Add chorizo back to pan and stir to incorporate and heat.
6 – Serve direct from pan or spoon into serving bowls.
* Garnish with cilantro and lemon wedge. Serve with warm artisan bread.

Buying Shellfish………

 

When buying live mussels or clams, choose those with tightly closed shells. Avoid any that will not close if tapped, and those with broken shells, since they may be dead and could therefore cause food poisoning if eaten.

Grilling Seafood……..

 
To grill shellfish in the shell, such as oysters, mussels and clams, place them directly on the hottest part of the grill. They’re done when the shell opens. Discard those that don’t open after about 5 minutes.

Here’s a good tip for all you Seafood Lovers out there. Before cooking mussels or clams, soak them in water with a few tablespoons of flour for 30 minutes. As they open to ingest the flour, they’ll expel any sand or grit they contain.
