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.

Feast your eyes on the finest mixed seafood linguine with chilli & cherry tomatoes! It’s straightforward and fun to make this great dish. Simply follow the instructions below and get the perfect result.

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.

Zuppa di Cipolle e PancettaOnion, Tomato and Pancetta Soup

By far – and I really mean by far – this has to be my favourite soup recipe in any of my books. If you like onion soup, this is so much more – in fact, I don’t know anyone who has tried it and not loved it. I think you will be amazed at the flavour combinations. Make sure it is always served hot. It will keep refrigerated for 48 hours, but remember, like most soups, it can be reheated only...

Capesante brasate con piselli e pomodori secchiBraised scallops with peas and sun-dried tomatoes

I adore scallops and must admit that I don’t like to interfere by adding too many ingredients that will alter their natural flavour, but I really think this recipe is special. It is so simple and quick to prepare and is very flexible in terms of being great as a dinner for one, or a starter or a main at a dinner party. You can replace the pancetta with chorizo if you prefer, and of course...

CuccioloneChocolate Ice Cream Sandwich

Chocolate ice cream sandwiched between two cookies – what more do you need from life?! Kids love cucciolone, and in my experience they really enjoy getting involved in making them too. You can use any cookies you like for cucciolone. Here I used choc chip cookies, which worked very well. I’ve also tried the same recipe with peanut and caramel cookies and it was delicious.

Brasato di coniglio con liquore al mirto e vino rossoRabbit Braised in Mirto Liqueur and Red Wine

Rabbit has a lovely mild, gamey flavour and firm, meaty texture; if you haven’t tried it, I urge you to do so. Ask your butcher to prepare it for you. If you really don’t fancy rabbit, chicken pieces make a good substitute. Mirto liqueur is often available in Italian delicatessens or online, but if you can’t find it use port or sloe gin instead.

As I was filming in the region of Trentino-Alto Adige I discovered that many locals have their own secret recipe for the perfect apple cake. The film crew and I were constantly trying different recipes and this is the one we all agreed is the best. Thank you to chef Stefano from Ristorante Pellegrino for sharing his secret recipe with me – and now with you too.
