Recipe for spinach pasta with seafood


Serves 4

One of the specialties of Konoba Kod Joze in Split, Croatia, is a dish that translates as “green noodles with sea fruits.” This spinach pasta with seafood is cooked in the Dalmatian style with plenty of olive oil and wine.

Salt, to taste
1pound fresh spinach
2tablespoons olive oil
6cloves garlic, chopped
1cup white wine
2dozen mussels
2dozen clams
½pound shrimp, shelled
¼cup chopped fresh parsley
Olive oil (for sprinkling)

1. Bring a large pot of salted water to boil. Add the pasta and cook, stirring often, for 5 minutes or until it is tender but still has some bite. Drain without rinsing.

2. In the pot over medium heat, heat the olive oil. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Add the wine and cook 1 minute more. Add the mussels and cover the pan. Steam for 2 to 3 minutes, shaking the pan occasionally, or until the mussels open. With a slotted spoon, transfer the mussels to a bowl and cover with foil; discard any that do not open.


3. Add clams to the pot, cover and steam for 6 minutes or until they open. With a slotted spoon, transfer the clams to the bowl of mussels; discard any that do not open.
