This can be done in so many different ways and so many different types of seafood can be used. We are going to just throw all the seafood we like in this recipe and you can take bits out. You don’t need to have Scallops and Monkfish tails in the same linguini. You’d be breaking the bank when it’s not exactly necessary! If you want to use different seafood, shoot us an email if you want to know what way we would integrate it into our recipe.
