Last night I ordered Linguine Pescatora at an Italian restaurant. It was linguine with shrimp, clams, and mussels. Usually, I am prepared to shell all of the mussels and clams. I was surprised when my plate came and all of the mussels and clams were already shelled.
I guess it's possible that someone back in the kitchen shelled it all in advance (there were a lot of clams and mussels in that plate) or do you think I received canned? Even the shrimp came minus the tail, but I know that happens from time to time, depending on the chef.
