Had some down time at the restaurant today and felt like cooking for my staff and having some beers after we closed. Coffee rubbed filets cooked to medium rare served with fried buffalo shrimp with a side of garlic parm mash. Easy to make bold flavors that are gut warming with a nice cold fat tire.
Had a good time doing this for my frat few weekends ago. Its always funny to bring high class food to the masses who normally spend their days consuming 12 dollar cases of beer and 9 dollar bottles of gin. Boil is actually pretty easy in my large pot I used the follwing:
100 clams-washed and clean
3 pounds shrimp-not shelled
2 dozen muscles
one pound potatoes
12 stalks of yellow corn shucked and cut into thirds
3 bay leaves
5 liters of white wine
one cup dry vermouth
about quarter cup old bay
sprig of dill, cilantro, basil, and rosemarry
heavy hand of salt and pepper
topped with water and let sit on a boil till the clams open easy at that all those nice seafood flavors will mix in nicely with the wine. Potatoes and corn will be the best tasting since they’ll suck up all those flavors.
