Its summer. Do not, I repeat, do not turn on your oven. Prepare a gas or charcoal grill for medium, direct heat. Stack 2 18-inch heavy foil sheets on a work surface. In the center of the foil, place 1 cup -inch diced new potatoes, 6 mussels, 4 2-inch pieces shucked corn on the cob, 1 quartered hot Italian sausage link or chorizo, cup thinly sliced fennel bulb, 1 tablespoon butter, 1 teaspoon tomato paste and teaspoon each freshly ground black pepper, garlic powder, kosher salt and smoked paprika. Pull up the sides of the foil and pour in cup white wine. Seal the packets by bringing up opposite sides of the foil and tightly folding them down, leaving a bit of room for the mussels to open. Fold the two ends closed and grill about 10 minutes. When the mussels have opened, remove and let rest 5 minutes. Serve with grilled bread.

Mix up your packets by adding clams and shrimp, or use the classic Old Bay Seasoning in lieu of other spices.
