Speedy Shellfish Spaghetti Recipe


  • 6 small portions “quick-cook” spaghetti (or you could use fresh spaghetti)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 30g butter
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and sliced
  • 2 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 1kg mussels, scrubbed
  • 750g pipis, scrubbed
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 1/2 cup fish stock
  • 10 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 lemon, halved and pips removed
  • Extra olive oil for serving
  • Italian parsley for garnish


  • Cook spaghetti in plenty of boiling salted water until al dente.
  • Meanwhile, heat oil and butter in a large pan with a lid. Add garlic and thyme then mussels and pipis and toss to coat them in the fragrant butter.
  • Add wine, stock and tomatoes (if you like more sauce or a wetter mixture, add more stock to suit). Cover pan and cook 3-4 minutes, shaking occasionally, until shellfish spring open.
