Zuppa di Pesce


Yield: 1 portion


Mise en Place:


Wholewheat Linguine Pasta                                               ¼#

White Wine                                                                       1/8 c

Marinara Sauce                                                                  2 T

Seafood Stock                                                                   ½ c

Flat Leaf Parsley                                                             1 T

Bay Scallops                                                                    10 ea

Littleneck Clams                                                              3 ea

Mussels                                                                           3 ea

Shrimp (16-20 size)                                                        2 ea

Calamari                                                                          2 oz

Extra Virgin Olive Oil                                                      1 T

Grape Tomatoes (cut in half)                                           4 ea


First, place a pot of water on the stove to cook the pasta and let it come to a boil. Secondly, in a sauté pan, lightly sauté the mussels, clams and shrimp in the olive oil. Next, deglaze the pan with the white wine (allowing it to reduce for 30 seconds) then add the marinara sauce and the seafood stock. Allow the liquid to reach a boil then turn it down to a simmer. At this time, drop your uncooked pasta into the pot of boiling water to cook it. This should take about 8 minutes. While your pasta is cooking, add the calamari, tomatoes and bay scallops to the simmering sauté pan and allow to cook through. By this time, the pasta should be al dente. Drain the pasta from the pot and place the cooked pasta into the sauté pan. Add the parsley to the pan. Let the pasta cook in the broth for a moment, arrange all of the ingredients in a bowl, then pour the broth over it.
