Instructions

  • Cook the linguine as directed on package. Reserve about 1 cup of the cooking water and drain off the rest
  • Place the tomato, garlic and onion in a food processor and blitz into slurry. Preheat a large skillet and add in 3 Tbsp of olive oil and saute the shrimp until they turn opaque and dish them out and set aside. Add in the tomato paste and saute for about 1 minute. Pour in the tomato sauce. Bring to a boil and then add in the minced clam with its juice, sugar and pinch of salt. Bring it back to a boil and have a taste. The sauce should be savory, garlicky with some hint of sweetness but not too sweet
  • Add in the lobster meat and give it a light stir and add in the cooked linguine and about 1/2 cup of the reserve pasta water to help loosen the pasta a bit and toss to mix everything. You may add more of the reserved pasta water if needed. The clam sauce should be somewhat a bit loose but not runny. Turn off the heat and transfer to a large serving platter and serve family style
