½tspsaffronIf you can find Italian - that's ideal. If not, any Saffron will do.
1cupdry white wine
1cuptomato sauce (canned is fine)
3tbspextra virgin olive oil
2tspsalt (or to taste)
1tsppepper (or to taste)
½tsp white sugar (or to taste)
The prep is the most important part of this dish coming together properly. Be sure to read my thorough prep descriptions above, especially in storing and caring for the seafood.Chop the garlic and herbs and set them aside in individual bowls. Halve the tomatoes. Zest and juice the lemon. Pre-measure all of your liquids (sauce and wine) and the oil and butter, and set aside. Clean the mussels, and discard any dead ones. Slice the calamari into rings. Peel and devein the shrimp (if necessary.) Set your pasta water up to begin boiling.
Heat one tablespoon of oil over medium-high heat in a large fry pan. Cook the shrimp on each side for about two minutes. Remove it from the pan, and set it aside in a clean bowl.
Next, add another tablespoon of oil to the pan, and heat it again. Then, add the calamari, tomatoes, and garlic. Cook for about two minutes, until the calamari turn opaque and begin to curl.
Then, to the hot pan mixture, add the mussels. Immediately pour in the wine and tomato sauce, and cover the pan for around two minutes. The steam and heat will cook the mussels and the shells will begin to open.
Once the mussels have opened up, turn the heat down to low (or off) and add to the mixture the remaining oil, butter, lemon juice and zest, saffron, salt, pepper, and sugar. At this point, cook your linguine.
Remove the sauce and seafood from the heat if not already, and add the shrimp back in. Combine with the linguine until the sauce has covered the noodles thoroughly.
Before serving, sprinkle with parsley and parmesan! Enjoy!
