Fast & Easy Dinner: Seafood Linguine

Fast & Easy Dinner: Seafood Linguine

Linguine with clams is one of my favorite recipes, so I'm constantly searching for new ways to recreate the classic Italian dish. This variation adds in scallops and white fish to make a robust, filling pasta. Diced tomatoes give the sauce a rich, red tint. The recipe is incredibly versatile. If you dislike scallops, add more clams, or substitute shrimp. Fresh marjoram can be pricey; luckily, parsley and basil are more affordable, just-as-fresh herb options. To check out the recipe,

Seafood Linguine


  1. 8 ounces whole-wheat linguine or spaghetti
  2. 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  3. 4 cloves garlic, chopped
  4. 1 tablespoon chopped shallot
  5. 1 28-ounce can diced tomatoes, drained
  6. 1/2 cup white wine
  7. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  8. 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  9. 12 littleneck or small cherrystone clams (about 1 pound), scrubbed
  10. 8 ounces dry sea scallops
  11. 8 ounces tilapia or other flaky white fish, cut into 1-inch strips
  12. 1 tablespoon chopped fresh marjoram or 1 teaspoon dried, plus more for garnish
  13. 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese (optional)


  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add pasta and cook until just tender, 8 to 10 minutes, or according to package directions. Drain and rinse.
  2. Meanwhile, heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and shallot and cook, stirring, until beginning to soften, about 1 minute.
  3. Increase the heat to medium-high. Add tomatoes, wine, salt and pepper. Bring to a simmer and cook for 1 minute.
  4. Add clams, cover and cook for 2 minutes. Stir in scallops, fish and marjoram.
  5. Cover and cook until the scallops and fish are cooked through and the clams have opened, 3 to 5 minutes more. (Discard any clams that don’t open.)
  6. Spoon the sauce and clams over the pasta and sprinkle with additional marjoram and Parmesan (if using).

Serves 4.

This is probably my father's favorite meal. I'm not too big on clams myself...
