  • 2 T olive oil
  • 4 T butter
  • 5 cloves garlic finely minced
  • 1 Shallot finely minced
  • 1 cup seafood stock or clam juice
  • 1 cup white wine
  • ground black pepper
  • salt
  • 1 pinch saffron
  • 1 t crushed red pepper
  • 1 lobster tail - split
  • 10 mussels
  • 10 clams
  • 10 shrimp
  • lemon wedges


  • In a 5 quart dutch oven, melt butter with the olive oil.
  • Add garlic and shallot and sauté until onion becomes translucent.
  • Add seafood broth or clam juice, white wine, bay leaf, saffron, plus salt and pepper to taste.
  • Bring liquid to a boil and cook for 5 minutes.
  • Lower to medium and keep broth at a strong simmer.
  • Add the clams, mussels, and lobster and cook for 4 minutes.
  • Add shrimp and cook an additional 4 minutes until clams and mussels have opened and shrimp are pink and opaque and the lobster shell is red meat tender. Adjust lobster cooking time depending on size - the rule of thumb is 1 minute per ounce.
  • Serve Immediately.
