NEXT week, October 6-13, is Na­tional Seafood Week, so if seafood is some­thing you en­joy then this sat­is­fy­ingly healthy recipe should per­fectly fit the bill – just get your lo­cal fish­mon­ger to help you gather all these fishy in­gre­di­ents.


Olive oil 3 cloves gar­lic, chopped 2 hand­fuls chopped pars­ley 125ml white wine 400g cherry toma­toes, halved 500g linguine or spaghetti 150g lan­goustines or king prawns shelled and de-veined

100g cala­mari (squid tubes) sliced into rings

200g fresh clams (or­der day be­fore from lo­cal fish­mon­ger)

400g mus­sels in their shells


Bring a pan of wa­ter to the boil and cook the linguine to al dente.

Drain in a colan­der and rinse to cool in cold wa­ter.

After scrub­bing and de-beard­ing the mus­sels and rins­ing the clams, steam both shell­fish in a cov­ered large pan with the white wine. When the shells open re­move from the pan and set aside, re­serve the fish liquor.

In the same large pan sauté the cala­mari in two tbsp of olive oil for two min­utes then add the chopped gar­lic; gen­tly fry for a fur­ther two min­utes, turn­ing all the time.

Add the cherry toma­toes and sauté to soften.

Add the liquor from the shell­fish and sim­mer.

Next add the linguine and coat thor­oughly in the sauce.

Fin­ish by adding the prawns to­gether with the shell­fish and the pars­ley, and very gen­tly heat through.

Sea­son to your taste, eat while hot and en­joy!
