Directions

  • Heat Everyday oil in a large skillet over medium heat.

  • Add the wine and lemon juice and cook 1 minute, add tomatoes and salt & pepper to taste. 
  • Bring sauce up to a low simmer and add clams and mussels. 
  • Cover tightly and cook about 3 minutes, lift lid carefully and stir. 
  • If clams and mussels are beginning to open, add the shrimp. If not, wait another minute or two and then add the shrimp. 
  • Cook covered for 3-5 minutes until all the shells are opened and the shrimp is firm and opaque, sprinkle with parsley and stir. 
  • Put into a deep heavy bowl and drizzle with Tenuta di Ghizzano olive oil. Serve with crusty bread.

 

*Note: You can add any fish you would like, including scallops, calamari and lobster; just cook until all fish is opaque and firm.

*Note: For a more rustic look, squeeze tomatoes by hand, instead of chopping them.
