How to Make Seafood Scampi


  1. Mince Garlic, Shallots and a tsp of extra virgin olive oil in a food processor.
  2. Coat bottom of large pot with olive oil and heat it on medium heat.
  3. Add the garlic and shallot mixture, saute until cooked, not browned but softened.
  4. Add Pinot Grigio to your liking, I used 5/8's of the bottle.
  5. Add mussels, clams and crabs. Cook until they begin to open approx. 8 mins.
  6. Add shrimp and scallops. Sprinkle with salt, black pepper and red pepper flakes to taste. Cook until shrimp is pink.
  7. When 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)
  8. Bring 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!
