Linguine alla Pescatora


A very simple recipe and quick to make. As always with seafood, the key is to find the freshest seafood to work with. In this version, I use shrimp, clams, and mussels mixed with spices bringing out robust flavors. This is a meal my son still craves for to this day. Great for any time of year and pair with a smooth Orvietto.
