Mini “Lobster” Bake

Having spent all my summers on the water, I find the clambake one of the most all-American staples of summer. This mini version is a substantial hors d’oeuvre that could also serve as a first course.

Scallops and Pearls

I am very fortunate to have summered on Nantucket since high school.

Mussels steamed in garlic and wine, twice-fried frites, a simple salad, and crusty bread to sop up all the broth makes for a great simple summer meal.
