Haven't actually tried that but I don't see why it wouldn't work. the Dat'l sauce
is pretty mild for a hot sauce but a superior ketchup substitute. Try mixing it
half & half with horseradish with a good sqeeze of lemon jiuce and a healthy dash
of Hab powder to give it a little character.  Should be fine for clams or shrimp.

Or...which I have tried, mix a green hab sauce like Lol-Tun with melted butter and
a dash of lemon and dunk steamed clams, mussells, crab or (preferably and) lobster
in it. Perfect justification for one more beer. :)

Hmmmmm...anybody wanna do steamers at Jim's in Boston on the 31st? I'll bring my
clam steamer if anybody's interested.  :)
