Perfectly cooked shellfish comes down to two components: steam, and a delicious broth.
To accomplish both of the above, you don't need much. For the steaming, you just need a big, covered vessel that can contain heat when you fill it up with the components of your seafood dish. This could be a big metal pot, a Dutch oven, or even, say, a clean, generously sized water pipe. You know, a bong.
And for the broth? Garlic, onion, leeks, lemon, and a big splash of beer should do the trick.
