Rock Shrimp Linguine

Get out of the cold and enjoy this magnificent blend of tender rock shrimp and earthy foraged mushrooms sautéed with sweet roasted shallot and perfectly cooked linguine pasta. We finish it with spicy harissa-scented breadcrumbs, the southern Italian way. Have you heard of harissa? It's a Tunisian and Libyan hot chili sauce (it adds a subtle heat to this dish) whose main ingredients are piri piri (a chili pepper), serrano peppers and other hot chili peppers and spices and herbs such as garlic paste, coriander, red chili powder, caraway and olive oil. This popular spice adds a chili flake element to our Rock Shrimp Linguine. We cook the harissa lightly with breadcrumbs and finish it with a touch of ground Parmesan. It's a perfect touch to our Rock Shrimp Linguine.
