I see the clams and mussels where open before you added. I guess you steamed them first?

Looks great and a nice combo of seafood. I've not had this dish in quite a few years, not everyone in my crew eats seafood.😕 Your Sauce recipe is nicely balanced...JJ

Just a tip for all. The flavor of Fresh Herbs can be highly volatile. Some are more hearty than others. Fresh Thyme can stand long cooking times, Cilantro Leaves don't hold up more than a couple of minutes. For the best result, add Dry Herbs from the beginning and Fresh Herbs near the end of cooking a dish or sauce.
A good trick, and John you reminded me of it, 👍is to add bundles of Soft Herb Stems from the beginning. Then add the Leaves near the end. There is no waste and the Herbal flavor develops a Layered effect giving your food that something extra that makes people wonder why your food is so much better than their's...

Thanks for the kind words and the fresh herb suggestions. I learned the hard way with the fresh stuff but seem to have a handle on it now.

Take care my friend,

John

Beautiful plate! Anything with seafood is fine by me! I like the quantity of the seafood shown in the pictures. Just enough for two people, or one very hungry person. Thanks for sharing and providing the recipe! 🍻

Hardest thing for many folks is figuring out portion control. I have found that the scale is your best friend in the kitchen. . .Along with sharp knives of course!

Give this recipe a try. . .I think you will like it,

That dish looks fantastic. Thanks for the recipe and for showing how to make it. We have an Italian restaurant that serves Shrimp Diablo that is good, but
this looks like it beats it hands down. Can't wait to make it.

Thanks Richie

Coming from you means alot. . .Thanks!
I wanted to make it as easy to follow as possible for those who have never tried a dish such as this one. I was hoping it would be worthy enough for the carousel for maximum exposure. Maybe nest time.

Take care my friend,

John

BandCollector, One more quick question: When you add the crab meat at the end, is it cold, room temp, or do you heat it like the rest of the dish? Sorry for not understanding. Have never used lump crab meat.

Since crab meat is so expensive I just purchase canned lump crab meat. Since it is already cooked before caned I just put in on top directly from the can.

Enjoy,

John

I would have added some oysters but when I did my shopping they were our of them and I didn't feel like driving elsewhere. I was hungry and anxious to get started. . .LOL

Thanks for the suggestion,

John

Dang glad I waited for the up date. Still haven't been to the restaurant due to the virus thing.
