Seafood Scampi Linguine

Recipe by  

"This is my own special recipe. The most requested dinner when friends and family come to visit from all over the country. It's so easy and trust me...I hate capers, but they add just the right flavor. If you really don't like capers, put them in a empty tea bag, fasten with a twist tie and throw it away before serving, but trust me I've had no complaints! This is a perfect dinner to entertain with or just for a romantic night for two. Suggestion: Have a nice but simple spinach salad and a good gourmet Italian bread with it."

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.
  2. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).
  3. Melt butter in a large heavy skillet. Add red pepper, zucchini, garlic, and shallots. Saute over high heat until the shallots begin to soften; about 4 minutes. Mix in capers, salt and pepper. Remove from heat and add clams and shrimp. Toss until it's fully mixed.
  4. Transfer mixture to a large baking dish. Cover and bake in a preheated oven until the clams have all opened and shrimp is cooked. Make sure the lid is not touching the shrimp or they'll burn and stick. Cook about 20 to 25 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  5. Pour the scampi over the linguine, top with fresh basil and serve.

I don't know what to say about this except that we did not like this at all! We love shrimp and clams, but this dish just did not work for us. Thank you, anyway.

Fantastic recipe-everyone loved it and I wouldn't change a thing. By the way, is this "Jackie's" Donna from Chester, NJ?

This is the best Scampi I have ever had!! Can't even taste the capers. This is better than any restuarant scampi I've ever had!! I omitted the clams once for just a plain Srimp scampi, but the clams were so good.

This recipe is a keeper. I no longer have to search for the right seafood Scampi Linguine. Everything right down to the capers was delicious. Yes, I will make this again possibly for Christmas Eve dinner.

This was such a great recipe! It was easy and delicious, too. I used the already cooked and peeled shrimp and added them just before serving. Also, I used olive oil instead of butter and it tasted great. Other than that, I followd the reciped exactly as written. I'll will definitly be making this again and again!

This recipe was AMAZING! Just wonderful. I made it tonight for the entire family and it was a hit! Every ingredient was perfect. I would not change a thing! I followed it exactly. I have been looking for a seafood pasta recipe with a light sauce, nothing creamy and heavy. This did the trick and I will be making this regularly from now on. We just can't get enough!
