Lobster Fra Diavolo



  • 1 ½ lb Lobster – Cleaned, Split in half
  • 6 Littleneck Clams
  • 6-10 Mussels
  • 6-10 Peeled & Deveined Shrimp
  • 6 Cloves Garlic – Chopped
  • 1 Cup Parsley – Chopped
  • 2 Cups White Wine
  • 1 TBS Tomato Paste
  • 1/2 Lemon – Juiced
  • 1 Can Pureed Tomatoes (I used Pastene ‘Kitchen Ready’)
  • 1 TBS Red Pepper Flakes
  • 1 Package Banza Angel Hair


  • Heat 2 TBS Olive Oil in a sauté pan on med-high heat, sauté shrimp 2 minutes on each side, or until they turn orange. Set Aside
  • Meanwhile, heat a large pot of water for the Angel Hair (don’t cook the linguine yet).
  • In the pan you cooked the shrimp in, add another 1 TBS Olive Oil, the lobster pieces, season with salt/pepper, and cook for 12 minutes flipping occasionally (Break apart tail from body, and claws from body).
  • Set Aside lobster pieces (except for the claws) after cooking for 10-12 minutes.
  • Add 1 TBS olive oil to pan, half of the chopped garlic, 1 TBS parsley, and the clams and mussels – cook for 30 seconds.
  • Deglaze the pan with white wine, stir clams/mussels, and cover for 5 minutes.
  • Take lid off, and set aside clams and mussels that have opened. (the littlenecks take longer to open. If they eventually don’t open, throw them out).
  • Your pan should now just have the lobster claws in them. Add the rest of the garlic, Tomato paste, red pepper flakes, 1 TBS parsley, and lemon juice. Season with salt/pepper, Cook for 2 minutes.
  • Add the rest of the lobster pieces back in, and then add the tomato puree. Stir.
  • Add 1 ladle of the boiling water, stir. Simmer the lobster in the sauce for 10 minutes.
  • Salt the pot of boiling water, and add the Banza Angel Hair.
  • Take the lobster back out. Once the linguine is cooked (I cooked it for 3 minutes), add it to the pan with the sauce. Stir.
  • Add lobster, clams, shrimp, top with the rest of chopped parsley and serve.
