"If you can't find clams, use mussels. If someone doesn't care for clams, double up on the shrimp and/or scallops. Baking times may vary according to the ingredients you select." — TerryWilson

This is delicious. We use this method to prepare fish often. Hubby mentioned he would like grilled shrimp and scallops and I remembered seeing this recipe. Since we enjoy the fish so much I knew we would love this as well. Very clean, straight forward flavor from the seafood and lemon-butter. Perfect light meal for the upcoming hot evenings. The only changes we made were that we used less of each type of seafood in each serving, didn't really count the number of shrimp or mussels (used in place of clams), only placed 3 large sea scallops in each packet and 2 small pieces of corn in each. Also drizzled approx 2 Tbsp of white wine over everything before closing each. Super fast and easy with excellent results. This will be a regular weeknight dinner as well as served to impress company here this summer. Thanks for sharing!
We used small foil bread pans, and covered with foil. Also added a 1/2 (small) lobster tail, cut lengthwise to each. Increased the butter by 50% to have more liquid for boiling/steaming. Easy to prepare, awesome dish. Will add some white wine next time. Also, we garnished with parsley instead of chives.
I was looking for a light, easy weekend grill meal and boy, did this one hit the mark! I used foil loaf pans and added about 2 T. white wine to each, as noted by other reviewers. Also added some yellow squash. Followed all other directions. Absolutely devine! Can't wait to make it again next weekend.
I scaled way back on the servings since it is only the two of us and clams are not available to me so I took the advice of the recipe submitter and used mussels instead. I also took the advice of previous reviewers and sprinkled some white wine over the top of each packet. We enjoyed this very much and I will use this recipe again.
Delicious! We skipped the mussels and just went with the shrimp and the scallops. We did just as the directions said but also added some white wine as some others had mentioned. It was probably one of the best meals I have had in a long time, including restaurants! We will definitely make this again! Thanks for the idea!!
very nice recipe! I added raw mushrooms and red skin potato quarters to the packets. I also didn't bother melting the butter. Instead of using freshly grated lemon peel, I quartered the lemons and threw them in the packets after squeezing. Next time I make this I will add muscles and season though with old bay or dill. Definitely a keeper!
Excellent! Next time I will add a little crushed garlic to the packet. This would be an excellent meal for company because you it can all be made ahead of time and then just throw them on the grill. Don't seal the packets, though, until you are ready to cook them so the clams remain alive. Discard any clams that do not open.
Hubby said the only way to make this better is to double it! nj
