I hear ya about the enchilada's I know exactly what your talking about after you peel off the corn husk you can tell right away.As you, I also like the greasy not dried out ones.
Now up here we have Steamers and Lobsters and Rock crab, Blue crab "same as the ones down there" and OMG the delicacy of Cape Cod scallops these bad boys are soooo sweet they sell for over $30 bucks a pound. When ever we have a clam bake we all hit the beach dig a big ass hole start a fire .. a big fire when all the wood burns down we fill it with boulders about the size of basket balls to softball size.
We then build another fire on top of that then when that dies out we get trash barrels full of a certain kind of seaweed, we lay it over the hot rocks then put the steamers lobsters on that then cover that with more seaweed then some cheese cloth dump couple beers on the lot of it ,this causes mass amounts of steam then cover it all with the sand we dug out every one hangs out at the beach for several hours then we dig it up and feast OMG is it good !!!
Thats what we call a traditional New England Clam bake some guys toss sausages ligusa potatoes all kinds of stuff hot dogs you name it just don't put any of that stuff on top of my scallops clams and lobster and we will be fine!
wow...sounds so good... my wife and I love good sea food.... dont get much of it here in central Texas, we eat ourselves almost sick when we go down to South Padre Island though, fresh Gulf oysters, shrimp and fresh Red fish Fillets and of coarse some Blue Crab, we found a little hole in the wall place down there called " Dirty Al's " and it is some of the best Fried Oysters we ever popped our lips on.......
My wife lived in Alaska for 2 years and she still talks about the quality of the sea food up there also.
Would love to travel up north and get to enjoy some of the great sea food you guys in the north east have up there some day, hard for a working man to do those things now days, never enough time.
