How to Make Seafood Scampi

Step-by-Step

  • 1Mince Garlic, Shallots and a tsp of extra virgin olive oil in a food processor.
  • 2Coat bottom of large pot with olive oil and heat it on medium heat.
  • 3Add the garlic and shallot mixture, saute until cooked, not browned but softened.
  • 4Add Pinot Grigio to your liking, I used 5/8's of the bottle.
  • 5Add mussels, clams and crabs. Cook until they begin to open approx. 8 mins.
  • 6Add shrimp and scallops. Sprinkle with salt, black pepper and red pepper flakes to taste. Cook until shrimp is pink.
  • 7When ready, pour into a large serving platter, sprinkle with minced parsley and 2 tbsps. of grated cheese (use more if you like but I leave it on the table to add when served with pasta)
  • 8Bring a pot of salted water to boil prior to starting the seafood. When the mussels & clams open, add the pasta to the boiling water. This way the pasta will finish cooking at the same time your seafood is ready. I throw a little parsley, cheese and a ladle of broth from the seafood over the pasta before serving. Enjoy!
