Add 1-2 cups of water or white wine to the pot (for a smokier flavor, you can reduce the amount of liquid)

Put pot on medium flame

Once the pot starts to steam aggressively, lower heat slightly

Steam for 35-40 minutes

To test for doneness, check out the clams and mussels – they should be completely open. You can also test the potatoes with a fork to see if they are tender.


“My friends loved it – the food was perfect. It was so easy to make and clean up. We didn't even use plates. I spread newspaper on the table and put the food right on it – what a memorable evening!”
