Seafood Medley: A Recipe

What You'll Need:

-Long pasta (of your own choice, we used Spinach Fettuccine)
-Parmesian
-Mozzerella
-1 Leek
-x2 Eggs
-Flour
-2-3 Garlic Cloves
-Cream
-Butter
-Salt & Pepper
-Olive Oil
-Muscles
-Lime juice
-x2 Lemons
-Baby Shrimps
-Red Caviar
-x1 bag of salad
-x2 Avocados
-x1 can of water chestnuts
-x1 Cucumber
-Italian Dressing (or make your own :))

**Enough for 4, and some leftovers! (at least in our case!)

What To Do With It:

1.)  Let the muscles & shrimps defrost if necessary.

2.)  Wash and dry salad, squeeze juice of of your lemon and let it sit.  You'll use this later on.  Be sure to remove any seeds from the juice leftover, some can find their way through.

3.)  Chop up 2-3 garlic cloves and your leek.  Place garlic along with some olive oil on the pan for which you shall sauté your shrimps and leeks.  Put some olive oil on the pan for which you will sauté your muscles as well.  Let them both simmer on low.

4.)  Marinate your water chestnuts in the Italian dressing as you chop your cucumber and two avocados and add them to your salad.  Squeeze lime juice over the salad.  This will act as your dressing apart from the remains of the marinade.  The water chestnuts will need to marinate for a good 30--45 minutes or so to really soak in the flavour.

5.)  Crack and whisk 2 eggs into a bowl.  Dip your muscles in the eggs before coating them in salt & pepper seasoned flour.

6.)  Add butter, cream, salt, & pepper to the pan.  Let it simmer on low as you shred (if necessary) your cheeses, add them as you turn up the temperature of the pan.  The main focus on this dish shouldn't be the pasta, but rather the seafood aspect to it.  Therefore, the sauce shouldn't been overly rich or cheesy.  Save some parmesan to sprinkle over your pasta later on instead if you feel that it needs some more cheese.

7.)  Add your chopped up leek as well as your baby shrimps to the pan and let them simmer.  Be sure to keep an eye on them so that they don't get too dark or even worse yet…burn.

8.)  Add your muscles to a separate pan, also, being wary of them becoming too dark or burning.  Once they've been cooked at least half-way through, add all of the lemon juice to the pan and stir them around in it. Key component to this dish!!

9.) While keeping a watchful eye on your seafood, boil a pot of water for your pasta.  This is one of the last steps in this recipe as the past we used was fresh and doesn't normally need more than 3-7 min. to boil.  Once the water is boiling, add some salt and the pasta.

10.)  Sift pasta through a sift and remove the sauce from the stove.  Combine the two in the pot, put on low simmer until the seafood is cooked through.

11.)  Put your pasta and sauce to a deep dish or a large plate before adding your shrimps, leeks, and muscles on top of it.  Slice your second lemon and place them on top.  As your final step, add your red caviar the very top of the dish, serve, and dig in!!

Enjoy :)
