Jim's Seafood Marinara
Jim’s Seafood Marinara
Five cloves crushed fresh Garlic
One stick butter
Fresh chopped parsley
1\2 pound jumbo shrimp
1\2 pound Large scallops
50 fresh top neck clams
Two cups white wine
Whole wheat spaghetti
1 cup crushed tomatoes
Here is a great version of one of my favorite seafood dishes. It is a fresh seafood marinara however rather light on the sauce. Easy to prepare and a great company dish.
First up, pre steam you clams until they just pop open and set aside. I will remove about half the clams from the shell to add to the sauce, then add the clams in the shell at the finish.
Put your butter in a large sauté pan and melt, then add garlic and cook until lightly brown. Then add wine and then add all of the seafood and cook until barley translucent.
Add about three cups pre cooked whole wheat spaghetti as well as to the pan, stir over medium heat. Sea salt and caracked pepper to taste. Add parsley and stir.
Set for four minutes on medium heat and then add clams in shell and garnish with your fav parmesan and romano cheese.
Very easy dish to make and absolutely delicious! One version of this is to top off your favorite blackened fish, pre cook the fish and simple lay it on top of the bed of seafood pasta. Your company will go nuts!!!
