Esperanza Spalding. Bistro table on garden patio in Martinique. Oysters. Petanque. More Oysters. For a lovely seafood dish, maybe try Venetian pasta with shellfish. I use mussels, bay scallops and prawns. Take the mussels, some diced tomato, fennel, shallots, garlic, white wine and butter and put this into a large sauce pan over high heat and cover. When the mussels start to open, put in some lemon zest, salt and Pastis or Pernod and cook that for about a minute. Reduce the heat to medium and add the scallops and prawns and cook until the sauce starts to thicken. When the shrimp are done, add some parsley and toss with pasta. Great for a warm summer afternoons on the sunny side of the street.
