Seafood Linguine – RECIPE
- Prep Time: 10 mins
- Cook Time: 40 mins
- Complexity: Easy
- Two 28-ounce cans of peeled Italian plum tomatoes
- 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
- 2 large garlic cloves, smashed
- 2 cups bottled clam juice (16 ounces)
- 2 large thyme sprigs
- 4 large basil leaves
- Pinch of sugar
- Salt and freshly ground pepper
- 2 pounds cleaned baby squid, bodies sliced crosswise into 1/2-inch rings, large tentacles halved
- 1 1/2 pounds thin linguine
- 2 pounds mussels, scrubbed and debearded
- 3 dozen cockles—scrubbed, soaked in cold water for 2 hours, and drained
- 1 pound medium shrimp, shelled and deveined
- Crushed red pepper
- Blend or process the Italian plum tomatoes into a smooth paste. After passing them through a fine sieve set over a big bowl, discard the tomato seeds.
- Heat the extra virgin olive oil until shimmering in a large nonstick cast-iron pan. Over moderately high heat, add the crushed garlic and cook for about 30 seconds, or until fragrant. Include the clam juice, sugar, thyme, basil, and tomato puree. Bring to a boil after adding salt and pepper. Cook for around 45 minutes at moderately low heat until it is reduced by one-third. Add the squid and continue to simmer for another 45 minutes or more, or until very tender
- Cook the linguine in a big pot of salted boiling water until al dente. Drain the pasta well and return it to the pot.
- Add the mussels and cockles to the tomato sauce, cover it, and boil it for 3 to 5 minutes, or until the majority of the shells have opened. Add the shrimp and continue cooking for an additional 2 minutes or until they are pink and firm. Unopened mussels and cockles should be thrown away. Over high heat, mix the cooked pasta with the tomato-seafood sauce for two minutes. Place the pasta and sauce in a large bowl that has been warmed up, top with red pepper flakes, and serve.
