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.

Fragole, Amaretto e MandorleStrawberries and Almonds with Amaretto Liqueur and Greek Yoghurt

Strawberries are on sale in supermarkets all year round but more often than not, the flavour isn't good unless they are in season. This recipe is perfect for those months when the berries are lacking their full taste and sweetness, as the Amaretto and honey add that extra something the fruit needs. This is a lovely refreshing dessert that will look really impressive if served in cocktail glasses.
