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.

Pizza con zucca voilina, cipolla rossa, cavolo nero, Dolcelatte e nociButternut Squash, Red Onion, Cavolo Nero & Dolcelatte Pizza With Walnuts

I wanted to try something different from a traditional pizza topping and I’m glad I did, as this pizza is delicious. The sweetness of the butternut squash works perfectly with the earthy cavolo nero, and the walnuts give added texture. When making this pizza for my vegan friends, I use a little tomato pizza sauce on the base and pile on all the other toppings minus the Dolcelatte. Serve with a green...

Soufflé Di Banane e CioccolatoBanana & Chocolate Soufflé

In our family, the combination of chocolate and banana is a big winner, especially in pancakes or cupcakes, so I created this soufflé just for a change. It's really easy to prepare, and also works well with strawberries or raspberries.

Crocchette di Barbabietola e SalmoneBeetroot Rosti with Smoked Salmon and Horseradish Cream

I have to admit that I'm not a great lover of beetroot, probably because I don’t particularly like sweet and sour together. This, however, is one of the few ways that I will eat beetroot because it works beautifully with the smoked salmon. If you are a beetroot virgin – here you go, this is the one to try. Make sure that you cook the rostis until they are very crispy.

Sardinia is famous for its beef, particularly that of the bue rosso (red cow), which grazes the pastures of the volcanic Montiferru area in central-western Sardinia and is considered by many to provide the finest beef in Italy.

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...
