Don’t be intimidated by the thought of cooking scallops and clams. They are fairly easy to make and I will show you photos for each step. When you make this yummy Pasta With Clams And Scallops you’ll be an expert.
The secret is the sauce. I used Clamato tomato cocktail. Have you tried it before? It’s delicious by itself but AMAZING inside this sauce. When you cook it and reduce it a bit, it gives a deep complex taste that compliments the seafood and pasta perfectly. You can also add some shrimp if you’d like.
Ready to start cooking? Then put on an apron, wash your hands and let’s get the kitchen dirty (sorry, it’s part of the experience).
We first start by putting 2 pots on the stove. One to cook the pasta and the other one for the sauce. Place water, salt and some oil to a boil. Throw in your spaghetti and let it cook while you make the sauce.
Meanwhile, chop some onions, garlic, and parsley. Heat some olive oil on medium heat and throw in your onions. Cook it for 2-3 minutes and then add the garlic. Cook the garlic for 1-2 minutes more.
Now comes the good part: pour in some white wine.
Then the Clamato.
Let this sauce comes to a simmer. You won’t believe the aroma coming from this pot. Add some hot sauce if you’d like.
Now throw in your cleaned clams and cover the pot with a lid. Reduce the heat to medium- low to let the clams steam. About 5-6 minutes.
In the meantime, season your scallops with salt and pepper. Heat olive oil in a small skillet over medium-high heat. Saute the scallops until brown on both sides.
After the 5 minutes have passed, remove the lid from the pot and check if the clams have opened. Any closed clams must be discarded since they are not fresh. I was lucky and all of them opened up beautifully!
Now we add the drained pasta to the sauce.
We stir and add the chopped parsley and the sauteed scallops.
And that’s it, folks! your delicious Pasta With Clams And Scallops is done and ready for eating. See? I told you it was easy and fast. You can get your Clamato juice along with the majority of the ingredients of this recipe at your local Walmart. Just scoot on over to the juice aisle.
