I am a fan of a clambake in the summer, and quite frankly, as often as possible, served anywhere, anytime—not only on the beach. This clam bake in a can method is carefully designed to accomplish that.



  1. Place the butter, white wine, garlic, tarragon and 1/4 cup parsley in the bottom of a 10-quart stockpot with insert and place the steaming insert on top. Add to the pot in the following order: potatoes, corn, reserved corn husks, lobsters, clams, shrimp, mussels, sausages, remaining 1/2 cup parsley and bacon. Cover with the lid and turn the heat on high until the liquid boils, then lower the heat and simmer on low until all the contents are cooked but not overcooked, approximately 25 minutes. Serve in the can or pour out onto a large platter. Serve with the lemons on the side.
