  • 400 g of linguine
  • 400 g white fish cut into inch thick dices
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 big handful of parsley roughly chopped plus some extra for garnish if you want
  • 50 g butter
  • 1 red chilli sliced
  • 2 cloves of garlic peeled and sliced
  • ½ cup white wine
  • ½ a lime juiced
  • 200 g cherry tomatoes
  • 500 g of cooked clams with shells, drained and washed.
  • 200 g cooked prawns
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt and pepper for seasoning


  1. Put 5 litres of water in a large pot then add about 2 teaspoons of salt. Bring to a boil, then add your linguini and cook for 9 minutes. When your pasta has almost finished cooking, get a mug and scoop out some of the pasta water. Once the pasta is cooked, drain it and set aside.

  2. Meanwhile, get a preferably non-stick pot or pan, and pre-heat on medium-high heat. Season your white fish with salt and pepper. Add half of your olive oil to the pan, then add your fish. Cook for 2-3 minutes on one side, then cook for about 1-2 minutes on the other side. Remove from the pan and then transfer to a bowl or plate.
  3. Put the parsley and a pinch of salt in a pestle mortar. Bash/grind until the parsley breaks down and starts releasing it's oils. Once the parsley has slightly pureed, add your butter, then mash through the parsley with a fork until well combined.

  4. Pre-heat the same pot you cooked the pasta in over medium heat, add the other half of your olive oil. Next, add your chilli and garlic and fry for about a minute.
  5. Add your white wine and your lime juice, then simmer for a few minutes. Once the wine has reduced slightly, add your parsley butter and stir through until melted.

  6. Add your cooked pasta, cooked fish, cherry tomatoes, clams and prawns. Gently stir together with a pair of tongs.
  7. Season to taste with salt and pepper, serve on a platter, garnish with leftover parsley if you have it then just give the pasta a light drizzle of extra virgin olive oil.
