Italian Seafood Linguine a delicious fast and easy Pasta dish. The perfect weeknight dinner dish. A fish lovers new favourite recipe.
Seafood Linguine, one of our favourite pasta dishes. The perfect dish with friends or family.
So needless to say I am not the biggest fish fan, Italians love fish. But there are a few that are must shares, and this Seafood Linguine (or Spaghetti) is one of them.
In the early days of my arrival in Italy I learned and tasted so many different pasta dishes my taste buds were jumping for joy every time they saw my mother-in-law put the big pot of water on to boil.
So when the plates of Seafood Linguine were served, I thought ok I will give it a try. And I have to tell you, Amazing!
These are bite size pieces of fish. We use, some small shrimp, calamari (rings) cut into 3 pieces, mussels, clams, cut up pieces of haddock or cod (or a similar white fish) all tossed together in some olive oil with fresh parsley, simple and really fast.
While your seafood cooks, you can boil the linguine. Toss it all together and your Seafood Linguine is on the table in 20 minutes (if not sooner). Buon Appetito!
