Capa Di Roma Seafood

Frutti di Mare Recipe

Have you ever tried Frutti di Mare? This one is for anyone who can’t get enough of seafood! In any seaside Italian city, you will find a frutti di mare dish on the menu.  It’s usually with a base of spaghetti or linguine, and filled with a mixture of tasty, fresh seafood like scallops, clams, mussels, and shrimp.  This dish is a bit more complicated since there are several ingredients, but it will be well worth it! What you’ll need:
  • 1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 10 ounces spaghetti
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • red pepper flakes
  • 12 littleneck clams
  • 3/4 cup tomato sauce
  • 12 mussels
  • 10 shrimp
  • 4 large sea scallops, cut or 10-12 small scallops
  • calamari – optional
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste
Step 1: Bring a large pot of water to boil.  In a separate pan, heat your oil over medium heat and saute garlic until browned.  Add red pepper flakes and stir for one minute. Step 2: Add wine and clams and cover.  Cook for 5-7 minutes over medium heat.  Cook your spaghetti in the large pot in the meantime. Step 3: Remove the cover of your pan, and simmer for one minute.  Add tomato sauce, salt and pepper and stir.  Add in the other seafood and cook until the clams and mussels open.  Grab your pasta with tongs right from the large pot, let the water drain off, and add it to the pan of sauce.  Add parsley at the end and buon appetito!
