SERVES 8 This sort of dish is popular with everyone in our region. It is
not very fattening and you can keep the level of salt down by using fresh
lemon juice. And besides, since the seafood is all fresh, it is delicious.

Cook the clams and mussels in one pot as per the instructions for Steamed
Clams. The only variation is that you must pull the little beard off the
mussels before steaming them. This is a mossy growth with which the mussel
attaches himself to a rock. Cook as directed, and drain the nectar and
reserve. Allow the clams and mussels to cool a bit and remove them from
their shells, discarding the shells. Cover and set aside.

Place the fish fillet in the nectar and bring to a simmer. Be sure that
the fillet has no bones. Simmer for 6 minutes and then add the shrimp and
scallops. Bring to a simmer again and turn off the heat.

Combine all the remaining ingredients in a bowl, except the lemon wedges.
Stir well to thicken. Drain the shrimp and scallops, saving the nectar for
a later use (like a midnight snack with a bit of beer!) and add all the
fish products to the dressing. Chill for 1 hour before serving. Garnish
with lemon wedges.

This can be served either as a main course or as an appetizer.
