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.

I love recipes that require just a few good-quality ingredients and are simple to make yet really have the ‘wow factor’, such as this pasta dish with mussels. You don’t have to use the bottarga - the dish stands alone without it - but a Sardinian cook would almost certainly grate it over the top of the finished dish.

Torta Al CaffeCoffee and Ricotta Tart

Every Italian loves coffee but I have decided to dedicate this recipe to my good friend Peter Andre. I have never met another man that loves coffee more than I do, so this delicious coffee and ricotta tart is especially for those of you who are like us. The creamy ricotta cheese paired with the strong coffee is amazing.

Banane Al CaramelloSticky Banana and Chocolate Tart

What a fantastic way to end a meal. So far, I don’t think I’ve met anyone, especially children, who doesn’t like this recipe. I promise you that once you’ve made this dish and realise how easy it is to do, it will become a favourite. My tip would be to make sure that you bake the tart in the middle of a preheated oven to avoid the pastry burning. If you have to, you can replace the bananas...

Risotto con zucchini e zafferanoCourgette & Saffron Risotto

Saffron, sometimes referred to as 'red gold' because of its deep ruby-red colour, flourishes in the fertile hills of Sardinia's Medio Campinado province in southwestern Sardinia. The locals use it liberally in their cooking, but given its high price in Britain I tend to use it sparingly and in dishes where it will be one of the star attractions such as this delicately-flavoured risotto. The courgette...

Rigatoni all’Arrabbiata con SalmoneRigatoni in Spicy Tomato and Salmon Sauce

Arrabbiata means 'angry' in Italian, and I guess they used it to name this dish because of the heat of the chilli peppers in the sauce. The spicier the better for me, but be careful in Italy when asking for this traditional dish to be extra spicy – they will take you at your word. In this recipe the rigatoni can be replaced with penne or any other pasta shape, if you prefer. Just get cooking –...
