2 pounds (about 24 clams) littleneck clams
1 1/2 pounds (24 to 27) mussels, debearded
6 ounces (about 1) leek
4 cloves garlic
2 tablespoons fresh ginger, grated
4 ounces (about 4 leaves) red chard
1 cup chicken stock
1/4 cup dry sherry
2 tablespoons reduced sodium soy sauce
1 teaspoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon chili paste with garlic
2 tablespoons water
2 cups broccoli florets

Put the clams and mussels in a colander and shake under cold running water for about 1 minute; discard any with broken shells or that do not close when tapped.

Trim the leek to the white part only, cut it in half lengthwise, clean, and slice thin (about 1/2 cup). Trim, clean, and cut each mushroom into 4 equal strips. Peel and sliver the garlic; combine it in a small bowl with the ginger. Trim and slice the chard (about 2 cups); set it aside.

For the sauce, combine the chicken stock, sherry, soy sauce, sugar, and chili past in a bowl. Mix and set aside. Preheat a Dutch oven over medium heat.

Combine the leek and water in the hot Dutch oven. Cook for about 2 minutes, until the leek is soft and the water has evaporated. Remove the pot from the heat and place the clams over the leek in a single layer. Cover with half the garlic and ginger mixture, a single layer of mussels, and the remaining garlic and ginger mixture. Top with a layer of mushrooms, a layer of broccoli, and the sauce. Cover and cook over high heat for 8 to 10 minutes, shaking periodically until the shellfish have opened.

Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the chard. Re-cover, and let sit for 2 minutes before serving.
