These recipes for clam chowder and Clam Fettuccine Alfredo could easily be adjusted to include other seafood such as dehydrated imitation crab or shrimp.

Package instant potatoes and chives in separate ziplock bags.
On the Trail:
Cook soup according to package directions. Add clams along with water in can. Add this into how much water is called for on soup package. Have each person add instant potatoes to their bowl of soup to desired consistency. Add chives to bowl.

Mix oregano, basil and red pepper in small ziplock, drop in unpeeled garlic. Mix Alfredo sauce, Parmesan cheese and powdered milk in another ziplock. Break fettuccine noodles in half and place in another ziplock.

Additional Comments or Suggestions:
You can use shrimp instead of clams if preferred.
I made this up on the Thorofare in NW Wyoming once and had a BIG (judging by his sign) Grizzly snoop around the tent in the wee hours. Never saw/heard him just saw his sign the next morning. And YES, I had washed my dishes well and had hung them and food in a bag far from camp....probably could smell my breath!!
Chef Glenn's Comments:
Great idea to make a saute pan out of heavy duty aluminum foil and a hooped pliable limb. If your pot includes a fry pan lid, you could also use that.
