If you have not noticed by now I absolutely LOVE fresh seafood, especially in the summer months when my Sister-in-Law is pulling Clams & Oysters from her bed on the Eastern Shore, it is my culinary duty to prepare these delicious shellfish in the tastiest way possible. Team Bobby Flay prepared this dish Sunday night on Food Network Star "Michelle's Taste of New England" So simple and TASTY !!!
