Great flavors! My 16 year old son gobbled this up. I used clams, scallops and prawns. I tweaked the cooking time on the garlic - cooking it just 30 seconds in the olive oil before adding the clams. I also added the prawns and scallops in at step 5. For most fish you'll really want to pay attention to the cooking time - 4 minutes was just right for my ingrediants. If you cook shell fish too long it toughens up! Thanks for posting this easy, tasty dish!
