  • 250 gm linguine pasta
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 6 anchovies, roughly chopped
  • 1 tbsp capers, roughly chopped
  • chilli flakes, to your taste (optional)
  • 8 prawns
  • 1 squid tube, cut into rings
  • 1/2 cup white wine (pinot gris)
  • 1.5 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1/8 tsp salt or to taste
  • pepper, to taste
  • 6 cherry tomatoes, halved


  • 2 lemon wedges
  • 3 sprigs parsley leaves, finely chopped (without the stem)


  • Prepare all of your ingredients.
  • Cook the pasta according to packet instructions.
  • Add the olive oil and garlic into a cold fry pan. Turn the heat to medium and allow the garlic to infuse.
  • Once the garlic is bubbling (roughly 3.5 minutes), add the anchovies, capers and chilli flakes (if using). With a wooden spoon mash the anchovy into the oil and simmer for a few minutes.
  • Check if the pasta is nearly done, about 80% cooked. If so, proceed to the next step, if not take the fry pan off the heat and wait until the pasta is further cooked.
  • Turn the heat up to medium high, and add the prawns and squid into the fry pan. Cook for roughly 30 seconds.
  • Add the wine, tomato paste, salt and pepper. Stir until thickened. (If the sauce appears to be thin, then add more tomato paste.)
  • Add the pasta straight from the pot and into the fry pan. Combine thoroughly with wooden spoons.
  • Gently toss in the tomatoes then taste check for seasoning. Adjust to your preference.
  • Divide into plates and squeeze some lemon juice over the top.
  • Garnish with parsley and serve.
