Frutti di Mare

  • Ingredients:
  • 2 tbsp. Oliviers&Co Everyday Olive Oil
  • Oliviers&CoGrassy Olive Oil
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, very thinly sliced
  • ½ tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
  • ¾ cup dry white wine
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 28 oz. can Italian plum tomatoes, cut up with juice
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 lb. mussels, scrubbed and de-bearded
  • 1 lb. clams, scrubbed
  • 1 dozen large shrimp, shelled and deveined, tails removed
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh Italian parsley


Heat Everyday oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Saute onions and garlic with red pepper for 2-3 minutes, until garlic is just barely golden brown. Do not burn garlic! 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 grassy 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. For a more rustic look, squeeze tomatoes by hand, instead of chopping them.
