HI, Gwen Cat here, in her guise as Rumpolt pusher/generic kind soul.

Of large shells (shellfish maybe scallops)
take the shells/ wash them out clean/ and lay them on a rack
and roast them/ prepare them nicely like oysters, or set them to in
water/ and give (them) dry onto the table with pepper 
and with salt/ or with sour

Of small black shells (I would guess mussles here)
Set them to in water/ and let them come to a boil/ so they 
open themselves up/ when you wish to prepare them/ so put (take) them
with a slotted spoon (I think) out/ put them in a bowl/ pour
a sour broth/ that is with eggyolks/ vinegar/ fresh butter/ 
and green herbs made/ thereover/ so they become good
and welltasting

Rough, on the fly, on my way to bed after 2 hours of making pawprint steppingstones out of concrete.
