Savva's Seafood Pasta Recipe From tashas

Dig in and Get Dirty With This Seafood Pasta

Every father leaves a legacy. Some fathers leave behind stamp collections, some leave behind vintage cars; some might even leave an old watch. In my family, fathers leave recipes. My great-grandfather was a fisherman, my grandfather was a baker and my father was a chef, but it was my brother, an interior designer, who perfected the recipe for our seafood pasta. We serve it at Le Parc with a bib, because it's a dig-in-and-get-dirty kind of dish.

Savva's Seafood Pasta Recipe From tashas


    250g cherry tomatoes
    40ml olive oil
    Salt and pepper
    1 sprig of rosemary
    40ml olive oil
    50g butter
    1 medium red onion, finely chopped
    4 small garlic cloves, finely chopped
    8 ripe tomatoes, grated
    Salt and pepper
    400ml Napolitana sauce (page 106)
    24 black tiger prawns, butterflied and cleaned
    4 langoustines
    12 mussels, cleaned
    16 clams, cleaned
    250ml white wine
    large handful flat leaf parsley, chopped
    500g linguine, uncooked
    60g butter to burn
    Olive oil



  1. Pre-heat the oven to 200 °C. Roast the cherry tomatoes on a baking tray, drizzled with the olive oil and seasoned with salt, pepper and sprinkled with rosemary. Roast until the tomato skins are wrinkled.


  1. Heat the olive oil and butter in a large pan and sauté the onion until golden brown.
  2. Add the roasted tomatoes, discarding the rosemary, and squash them gently to release the juices.
  3. Add the garlic and cook for 2 - 3 minutes.
  4. Stir in the freshly grated tomato and simmer for 5 minutes with the lid off. Taste and season with salt and pepper.
  5. Add the Napolitana sauce and bring to a boil.
  6. Carefully add the seafood, wine and half the chopped parsley.
  7. Make sure that the seafood is covered by the tomato sauce.
  8. Stir it gently and as little as possible or the seafood will disintegrate.
  9. Cover with a lid and cook on high heat for 5 minutes.
  10. Remove the lid, reduce the heat to medium and allow to simmer for another 20 minutes. The sauce should not be too thick or too runny. You will know it is ready when the mussels and clams open up.


  1. Meanwhile, cook the pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water until al dente.
  2. In a separate pan, burn 60 g of butter.
  3. The butter must melt at a high heat in the pan until it bubbles and turns golden.
  4. Drain the pasta, place it in a large bowl and pour the burnt butter over it.
  5. Then spoon the seafood sauce over the pasta.
  6. Garnish with the remaining parsley and a generous glug of olive oil.
