Recipe: Seafood Pasta

We are total foodies here at TGtB and Pasta allo scoglio (seafood pasta) has to be one of our absolute favourite dishes at the moment.

So if you fancied following our lead, you can whip up some restaurant quality food in the comfort of your own kitchen, just follow our exclusive recipe:

Pasta allo scoglio - Lazio

Prep: 15 min; Cook: 30 - 40 min
Easy, but with several steps
Serves 4

You can use any fresh or frozen seafood combination in this tasty dish - more and better ingredients improve it. We like it with a few cherry tomatoes. Dish can be made with just mussels or clams or shrimp (any single ingredient) or a combination of what you can find.

We used shrimp, mussels, squid and fresh cherry tomatoes for this recipe.

  • 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3/4 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper or 1/2 dried pepperoncino
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 12 - 20 cherry tomatoes, cut in half (pictured dish)
  • 4 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 package spaghetti, linguine or similar pasta

SEAFOOD INGREDIENTS (any combination)

  • 1/2 pound cleaned squid, bodies cut into 1/4 to 1/2 inch wide rings, tentacles left whole
  • 1 pound small littleneck clams, scrubbed
  • 1 pound mussels, scrubbed, debearded
  • 1 10 ounce uncooked lobster tail, shelled, meat cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 8 ounces shrimp, cooked, peeled, deveined
  • 4 ounces bay scallops

Skillet or wok large enough to accommodate entire dish; pot to boil shrimp; covered pot/pan to cook mussels/clams; pasta pot.

WE cook the seafood ingredients separately and add them together to the sauce at the end to keep the flavours distinct.

CUT the tomatoes in half and set aside.

COOK the shrimp/lobster tail (boil or sautée) and clean; set aside.

IN a separate pan with a cover, cook the cleaned mussels/clams (put them in the pan with a little water, covered) and cook quickly on high heat until they open. Do not overcook as they will get tough. Discard those that don't open. Set the mussels/clams aside, strain the remaining liquid through a coffee filter or paper towel (there may be some residual sand) and set aside.
