Clambake

Directions

  1. Thaw lobster tails, if frozen. Set aside. Scrub live clams and mussels under cold running water. Using your fingers, pull out the beards from the mussels that are visible between the shells. In a large pot combine 4 quarts cold water and 1/3 cup of the coarse salt. Add clams and mussels; soak for 15 minutes. Drain and rinse, discarding water. Repeat twice more.
  2. Place clams and mussels in the bottom of a 13x9x3-inch disposable foil pan. Top with chorizo (if desired), potatoes, and corn. Place lobster tails on top. Cover pan with foil; seal tightly.
  3. For a charcoal grill, place foil pan on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals. Grill for 20 to 30 minutes or until potatoes are tender. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place foil pan on the grill rack over heat. Cover and grill as directed.)
  4. Transfer clam mixture to a serving platter, reserving cooking liquid. Discard any unopened clams and mussels. Serve seafood and vegetables with butter and cooking liquid.
