Linguine ai Frutti di Mare
Mixed Seafood Linguine with Chilli & Cherry Tomatoes

About This Recipe

Are you looking for a delicious seafood recipe with a difference? If you are, you’ve found it! Here’s my mixed seafood linguine with chilli & cherry tomatoes for you to enjoy.

I have to admit that my mother is not the best cook in the world unless cooking traditional Neapolitan dishes she has grown up with. However, this has to be one of her best creations that she prepares for me every time I go to visit her. It is very important for this recipe to use tinned cherry tomatoes because if you use the fresh ones, the sauce will be too watery. Do not overcook the prawns or langoustines otherwise they will get tough and chewy.

Step By Step

Wash the clams and mussels under cold water. Discard any broken ones and any that do not close when tapped firmly.

Place the shellfish in a large saucepan, pour in the wine and cook with the lid on for 3 minutes, until they have opened. Discard any that remain closed. Tip into a colander placed over a bowl to catch the liquor and set aside.

Heat the oil in a large frying pan and gently fry the garlic until it begins to sizzle. Add the chili and the tomatoes and cook over a medium heat for 5 minutes. Season with salt and stir occasionally.

Add 6 tablespoons of the reserved cooking liquor from the mussels and clams and continue to simmer the sauce for 2 minutes.

Stir in the langoustines and the prawns and continue to cook for a further 3 minutes until they turn pink.

Add the clams and mussels with the parsley and stir until heated through. Meanwhile, cook the pasta in a large saucepan in plenty of boiling salted water until al dente. Drain and tip into the pan with the sauce.

Toss everything together over a low heat for 1 minute to allow all the amours to coat the pasta. Serve immediately.

Tiramisu con ciliegeCherry Tiramisu

If I asked you to name one Italian dessert , I guarantee the vast majority would say tiramisu. However, not everybody likes the coffee that the biscuits are traditionally soaked in, so my version – inspired by a trip to the cherry orchards of Castello, where Ciro and his family grow wonderful fruit – uses liqueur instead. If making this for children, just leave out the booze and cook the cherries...

Aubergines were introduced to the Mediterranean region by the Arabs in the Middle Ages and Sicilians use them a lot in their cooking. Stuffing sliced aubergines with cheese, breadcrumbs and other goodies is a particularly popular way of serving them. Feel free to be creative with your fillings – this recipe is not about precision. Choose the heaviest aubergines you can find and cut just before...

Tonno alla griglia con bricioleGrilled tuna steak with garlic breadcrumbs

Every now and then fish and chips in the UK is a must, but I must admit I often prefer my fish in breadcrumbs rather than batter – they make a far lighter coating that really means you taste the fish – and with this recipe I’ve come up with a much healthier but still delicious version. Tuna is such tasty meaty fish and the breadcrumbs add a bit of luxury to it. A crisp salad is all you need to...

Spiedini di AgnelloSkewered Marinated Lamb with Rosemary & Mint

Often people have this misconception that you can only make meat skewers in the summer and cooked on a BBQ – this is not the case.  Make sure once the skewers are ready to be cooked that your griddle pan is very very hot to enable the meat not to get stuck to the pan.  Use sirloin steak if you prefer and if you don’t like mushrooms substitute it with shallot onions.

COPPETTE DI FRAGOLE, MASCARPONE E LIMONCELLOStrawberry & Mascarpone Tarts with Limoncello

For me, limoncello is the scent and flavour of home. Traditionally, this citrus liqueur is made from the best lemons in the world – Sorrento lemons. In Italy it is a hugely popular drink, with many people in the south making their own version. It’s really strong, about 40% proof, so you only need a small amount. Here, limoncello is mixed with creamy Italian cheeses and fresh seasonal strawberries...

My Mother’s LasagneLasagne di Mamma

This recipe has been handed down in the D’Acampo family for many generations, though I call it ‘Lasagne di Mamma’ because my mother taught it to my sister and me when we were about  11 years old . It's a great tradition that my wife will pass on to our own children. Allowing the dish to rest for a good 10 minutes before serving allows the layers to firm up slightly and become easier to cut neatly.
