Fruits de mer, or fruits of the sea, is a harvest of shellfish. It may contain all of those listed or only some of them, depending upon what you have available, or how expensive you would like to make the dish. Perhaps the one requirement is that it should contain both crustaceans and mollusks, and not just one or the other. This is one of my favorite recipes.
