I second the pasta idea. Nine times out of ten it's what I do with leftover clams &/or mussels.

To make it easy on myself, I keep a can (or jar) of commercial white clam sauce on hand in the pantry & then just tweak it with extra-virgin olive oil, minced garlic, chopped Italian flat-leaf parsley, etc., plus, of course, my extra shellfish.

Leftovers. Did someone say leftovers? Never in my house, but i like Jeekin's idea. Can't go wrong with pasta and seafood and garlic and wine.

Lol!! Yeah, we never have more than a handful or so of leftovers, if that, which is why I simply add those little strays to tweaked white clam sauce. There are never enough left over to really do anything else with.

Normally, I would second the idea of sauteing, with lots of garlic and/or shallots, in a buttery white wine sauce over pasta.

That said, how about making a nice, cheesy, stuffing and stuffing some porto's with them?

Growing up, my dad would clean them (they were right out of the sand), put them in a pot and cover them with water, and boil until they opened/were done. They were then dunked liberally in melted butter and consumed (by him - I can't stand the thought of the sand in the stomach).

Seafood marinara..........you can freeze it.........I'm having 6 people over on Sunday.......it's so easy and so good......basically shhhhhhhhhhhhh don't tell anyone a good jarred or canned sauce.........NOT Ragu........cook some onions and garlic ahead of time.......add some jarred rooms (fresh cost you your firstborn) I don't add much else but you could..........I feel so guilty and it's so good.......the recipe calls for artichoke hearts but that is such an iffy item here...........you guys need to go inside your stores and kiss the floors.......I will NEVER take an American grocery for granted........along with bread, good salad, and zucchini........we're set.....

Haha, you beat me to it. I was going to say that left over clams and mussels was an oxymoron, at least in my house. :)
