Smoky Sheet Pan Clambake
“Easy” and “clambake” aren’t two words you’d necessarily put together. Enter this simple remix of the classic dish, which serves a crowd while only requiring two baking sheets. You’ll toss the standard ingredients—potatoes, sausage, shrimp, mussels, and clams with a generous amount of smoky, paprika-spiced butter. All that’s left to do is let the oven do the work. You can serve straight from the pan for quick clean up, or transfer everything to a pretty platter before garnishing with fresh parsley. Serve with steamed corn, plenty of beer or wine, and crusty bread for sopping up the delicious juices. This is a nearly hands-off winner to a summertime fave.
For a casual vibe, let folks spoon their portion, juices and all, right from the baking sheet onto their plates. Serve with steamed corn on the side (one ear per person), and pair with a crisp beer or easy-drinking wine, like sauvignon blanc or rosé.
