  • Looks delicious! 🙂 I've never cooked much with seafood, I am curious as to why you need to cook them with the wine in separate pots?

    • I've seen that mussels and clams are cooked separately. It seems they are ready at different times, and then you can use their liquid while cooking the rest of the seafood 😋

    • Interesting, seafood is rather delicate, best to give it the love it deserves
