This is her world-famous Seafood Whatever Ya Call It. She made enough thinking we could nibble on it all week here at the warehouse but it's gone. There's nary a crumb left!
2 cans diced clams and their juice
1 yellow onion, diced
2 leeks, sliced lengthwise and thinly sliced
3-4 stalks celery, thinly sliced
1 pound Cellini beans, rinsed and sorted
1 teaspoon Mexican Oregano
1/2 teaspoon Summer Savory
Water to cover
Place clams and their juice, onion, leeks, celery and beans in crock pot. Add spices. Add water to cover. Cook on high for 5 to 6 hours until beans are "done."
2 russet potatoes, cut in 1/4 inch cubes
1 package frozen artichoke hearts, defrosted
1 package frozen chopped spinach, defrosted
1 pound mixed seafood (shrimp, calamari, scallops)
In large pot on stove top place potatoes and just enough water to cover. Bring to boil, reduce to simmer and cook until tender. Add artichoke hearts, spinach and seafood and heat to boiling. Combine with the bean mixture from the crock pot and heat through.
5 or 6 large slices of sourdough bread, left out to harden
1/2 cup (1 cube) butter
1/3 cup Reggiano
In food processor process sourdough to form bread crumbs. Melt butter and garlic. Toss with bread crumbs and Reggiano.
Place approximately half of the seafood/bean mixture in a 13x9 baking dish or large casserole. Top with bread crumbs. Place in 375 degree oven for approximately 30 minutes. Serve it up. Should serve 4 to 6.
Freeze the other half of the seafood/bean mixture for another time.
