- • Preheat oven to 450°F (230°C)
- • 18- by 13-inch (45 by 33 cm) rimmed sheet pan, lined with foil
- 1. On prepared pan, toss potatoes with oil, salt and pepper. Spread in a single layer. Roast in preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until potatoes are slightly tender.
- 2. Remove pan from oven and scatter mussels, clams, corn and sausage evenly over pan. Sprinkle with butter and Old Bay seasoning. Roast for 8 minutes.
- 3. Remove pan from oven and scatter shrimp over pan; stir to combine, then spread evenly over pan. Roast for 3 to 6 minutes or until mussels and clams have opened, shrimp are pink and opaque and potatoes are tender. Discard any mussels or clams that do not open.
- 4. Scoop seafood mixture into bowls with any accumulated juices and serve with any of the suggested accompaniments, as desired.
To make your own seafood seasoning, combine 3⁄4 tsp (3 mL) celery salt, 1⁄2 tsp (2 mL) freshly ground black pepper, 1⁄2 tsp (2 mL) sweet paprika and a pinch of cayenne pepper.
It is best to discard any mussels or clams that do not open after cooking because that is a strong indicator that they are not safe to eat.
