While everyone is getting ready for the big feast this week, I like to switch things meal-wise those few days before the holiday.
Let`s focus on some fresh seafood in a briny, flavorful sauce on top of a bed of linguini. It`s uber fast to prepare and you will feel as though you took a quick trip to a seaport in Portugal
Recipe for Portuguese Style Linguini with Shrimp, Chorizo and Clams
4 tbsp olive oil 1 large onion, chopped 2 garlic cloves, minced 4-5 oz chorizo, diced 1 1/2 tbsp S&T special fish seasoning 1/2 cup white wine 1 1/2 pound shrimp, peeked & deveined 2 – 6.5 oz cans of chopped clams plus the juice 1 lb cooked linguini

Increase heat to medium-high and sear/cook shrimp for 2-3 minutes. Deglaze pan with white wine on high heat. Reduce to medium low heat. Add clams and juice. Simmer until fully heated through and then toss linguini in pan and cover with the sauce. Garnish with parsley. Serves 6.
