Fresh seafood: what to do?

At the coast this weekend I bought freshly caught shrimp, scallops and crab. I am stumped on what to make! There are too many options: jambalaya or gumbo with the shrimp, bouillabaisse with shrimp and scallops and maybe some fish, crab cakes w/ the crab or crab Louis salad, seafood Newburg using all of the seafood, paella w/ the shrimp and scallops, or something else.

What do you think I should do with my fabulous seafood purchase?

get some whitefish, and go bouillabaisse... without question!

I don't know what, but just do it quickly!

Ceviche or kinilaw?

If you can get your hands on some tasso, make some jambalaya. But it sounds like you've got a lot more seafood than one batch of jambalaya will take care of.

I think the last time I had scallops at home, I made some sort of Italian pasta dish with them. It was yummy.

Scallops rock! Ceviche scallops rock more!

This just in from the New York Times:
