Ingredients

3 large red bell peppers
1/4 Teaspoon salt
1/8 Teaspoon pepper
2 dozen oysters (about 1-1/2 ounces each) in the shell, scrubbed
2 dozen clams (about 1 ounce each) in the shell, scrubbed
2 dozen mussels in the shell, scrubbed and debearded

Directions

1. Preheat grill.
2. Cut peppers in half lengthwise; remove seeds and stems. Cut 2 to 3 small slits in both ends of each half; press down on peppers to flatten them. Coat peppers with butter-flavored cooking spray. Season with salt and pepper. Place on grill over hot coals, skin side down, until tender and slightly charred, allowing 10 to 12 minutes and turning occasionally.
3. Place peppers in food processor fitted with steel cutting blade. Process until smooth. Stir in salt and pepper. Transfer to serving dish; set aside.
4. Arrange oysters (cup side on grill), clams and mussels on grill 4 to 5 inches from hot coals. Cover with lid or aluminum foil. Cook 7 to 12 minutes, depending on size. Clams will pop open when done (discard any that do not open). Oysters will begin to steam or bubble around the fluted edges when done. Remove to a platter as soon as they are done. Pry open oysters with an oyster knife or other sturdy knife. Serve with roasted red pepper sauce.
