    Shrimp, littleneck clams, and lobster. Strip the shells and cook down the shrimp and lobster shells in fish stock/Vinho Verde wine & butter to glean the marrow from the seafood shells. Throw in the littlenecks for 8 minutes to let them open, then remove.

    Drain the detritus, then re-add the liquid to the Dutch oven, add the seafood except the clams, 1/2 can of whole tomatoes, bay leaf, chorizo sausage slices, thyme, tomato paste, olive oil, onion slices, sliced Poblano pepper, more seafood stock, saffron, paprika, splash of wine, and some heavy cream.

    After simmering for a while, add the clams and chopped rainbow chard, then serve with crusty bread to sop up the yummy liquid.
