I really can't get enough shellfish. Growing up, I would spend my summers devouring buckets of steamers and clams on half shell. Any preparation, I am pretty much a fan! Now older and living in Maine, I am still fascinated with the briny, soft textured offerings of the northern coastline.
I love making updated and upgraded versions of childhood classic dishes. This recipe was always made by my father and he and myself were usually the only ones in my family who would eat this Italian seafood salad. This dish was always made for Christmas and if I was lucky, he'd add a can of chopped conch, or as we called it, "scungheel".
