A delicious Italian meal perfect for any sea food lover. Tons of different sea foods tossed together with linguine in a light tomato sauce. You can substitute the seafood listed below with any of your favorite kinds. This is one of my favorite meals, and I hope you can enjoy it as well.

12 Black mussels 
8 shrimp shelled and de-veined (frozen or fresh) 
1/2 lb Sea scallops

4. Add linguine to boiling water, cook til al dente
5. Remove clams from skillet and set aside, add in tomato sauce and season with salt. Add in the haddock and scallops and cook for about 5 minutes, until scallops turned white and haddock is flaking apart
