While scanning the menu and listening to my friends yell at each other about hockey, I happened to see seafood linguine on the menu. Now, I am an uncultured swine, and I didn't really know what linguine was. But you'd best believe I love me some sea food, so I was willing to risk it.
It came out, all noodly and seafoody, and then boom. Delicious.
This instructable documents my attempt to recreate that experience.
Step 1: Let's Get Ingredients
• 1 pound of shrimp. These shrimp should be uncooked and gray. If they're already cooked they'll be tough when you re-cook them.
•1/2 pound of scallops.
•1/2 pound of squid tubes. These are basically squid scalps. They're the skin on the outside of the squids head. They look like white rubbery wizard hats.
•1 pound of clams and oysters. There won't be a pound of clam meat, because the shells make up a lot of the weight, but a pound should be enough, even including the shells.
•Linguini. One package will probably be enough. It expands a lot when it's boiled.
•butter and olive oil.
Step 2: Prepare the Ingredients
• Depending on the size of your scallops you may need to chop them into smaller, more bite size pieces. This helps it to cook better and to mix with the rest of the dish.
•Take the squid tubes and chop them up, so that they form rings of squid. If you've ever had calamari shaped like rings, this is how they do it.
Step 3: Prepare the Other Ingredients
•Take the box of linguine noodles. Set it on the table and allow it to continue to be linguine. We don't need it just yet.
Step 4: Fry the Seafood and Boil the Linguine
Now boil some water and toss in the linguine.
Step 5: Make the Sauce
You could choose other sauces as well. I hear white wine sauce goes well with this type of dish.
Step 6: Serve
Have a linguine party!
