• 1 1/4 cups dry white wine
• 6 cloves garlic, peeled
• 2 large shallots, quartered and peeled (root ends left intact)
• 1 1/2 pounds small red potatoes
• Red-pepper flakes (optional)
• 6 ears corn, shucked and halved
• 5 dozen clams, scrubbed
• 2 lemons, quartered
• 1 pound shell-on extra-jumbo shrimp (16 to 20)
• 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
• 1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
• 2 tablespoons chopped fresh oregano leaves

1. In a 12-quart stockpot, bring wine and 3/4 cup water to a boil. Add garlic, shallots, potatoes, and 1/2 to 3/4 teaspoon red-pepper flakes; cover and cook 8 minutes. Add corn, clams, and lemons; cover and cook until clams have opened, 10 to 12 minutes. Add shrimp in a single layer, cover, turn off heat, and let sit until shrimp are opaque throughout, about 3 minutes.

2. Transfer shellfish and vegetables to a serving platter, setting lemons aside; discard any unopened clams. Pour broth into a bowl and whisk in butter, parsley, and oregano. Scrape flesh from half the lemons into broth, discarding skins. Serve shellfish and vegetables with remaining lemons and broth for dipping.
