Preparation:25min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:55min 

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.
  2. Preheat oven to 230 degrees C.
  3. Melt butter in a large heavy frypan. Add red capsicum, zucchini, garlic and eschalots. Saute over high heat until the eschalots begin to soften; about 4 minutes. Mix in capers, salt and pepper. Remove from heat and add clams and prawns. Toss until it's fully mixed.
  4. Transfer mixture to a large baking dish. Cover and bake in a preheated oven until the clams have all opened and prawns are cooked. Make sure the lid is not touching the prawns or they'll burn and stick. Cook about 20 to 25 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  5. Pour the scampi over the linguine, top with fresh basil and serve.
