Today’s Recipe from the Road comes from Prince Edward Island Canada. If you’ve ever been to PEI or Nova Scotia area, you know they love their seafood. When we camped on PEI several people from the campsite walked right out into the bay and picked up clams and mussels to cook and eat. You can’t get any more fresh then that!
