Italian.Chef's picture
Ingredients
  Olive oil 6 Tablespoon
  Garlic 1 Clove (5 gm), minced / pressed
  Canned tomato puree 15 Ounce (1 Can)
  Dry white wine 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Capers 2 Tablespoon, drained
  Finely chopped parsley 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Sea scallops 8 Ounce, rinsed, drained, and cut crosswise into 1/2-inch-thick slices
  Raw shrimp 1⁄3 Pound, shelled and deveined (12 Large Ones)
  Hard shell clams 12 Small, suitable for steaming, scrubbed (In Shells)
  Mussels in shells 12 , scrubbed and beards pulled off
  Dried linguine 6 Ounce
Directions

Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in a 2- to 3-quart pan over medium-high heat.
Add garlic and stir until soft (about 1 minute).
Add tomato puree, wine, capers, and 1/4 cup of the chopped parsley.
Bring to a boil; then reduce heat and boil gently, uncovered, until sauce is slightly thickened (about 10 minutes).
Season to taste with salt and pepper; set aside.
Cut 4 rectangles of cooking parchment, each 15 by 24 inches.
Place scallops and shrimp in centers of rectangles; place clams and mussels alongside.
Pour tomato sauce over scallops and shrimp.
To seal each packet, bring together short ends of parchment and fold over by 1 inch; then fold over by 1 inch a second time.
Fold the open ends under 2 or 3 times; tuck under packet.
Place packets in a single layer in a large, shallow rimmed baking pan.
Bake in a 425° oven until clams and mussels pop open (about 15 minutes).
To check, open one end of one packet; if necessary, reseal and continue baking.
Meanwhile, in a 5- to 6-quart pan, cook linguine in 3 quarts boiling water just until tender to bite (8 to 10 minutes); or cook according to package directions.
Drain well and place in a warm serving bowl.
Mix in remaining 1/4 cup oil and remaining 1/4 cup chopped parsley; keep warm.
