1 tablespoon: olive oil
1 teaspoon: butter
1/2: Spanish onion, minced
3 cloves: garlic, minced
3 1/3 tablespoons: olive oil, divided
1 teaspoon: butter
2 cups: clam juice
1/4 pound: fresh mussels, scrubbed and debearded
1/2 teaspoon: crushed red pepper flakes
2 tablespoons: finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
1 teaspoon: chopped fresh basil
: salt to taste
: ground black pepper to taste
1 (16 ounce) package: fresh linguine pasta
1 pound: uncooked medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 cup: chopped fresh clam meat
1/2: lemon, juiced
1: cooked lobster tail and claw meat - coarsely chopped
1 tablespoon: freshly shaved Parmesan cheese
1/2: lemon, cut into wedges
1 sprig: fresh flat-leaf parsley
Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil and 1 teaspoon of butter in a heavy skillet over medium heat, and cook and stir the Spanish onion and garlic until the onion is translucent, about 5 minutes.
While onions and garlic are cooking, bring a pot of salted water to a boil, and drizzle in 1 teaspoon of olive oil.
In the skillet, stir in remaining 3 tablespoons of olive oil and 1 more teaspoon of butter. Allow butter to melt, then stir in the clam juice, mussels, red pepper flakes, 2 tablespoons of chopped flat-leaf parsley, basil, salt, and black pepper. Bring the mixture to a simmer and cook just until the mussel shells begin to open, about 3 minutes.
Stir the fresh linguine pasta into the boiling water and cook, stirring occasionally, until the pasta is tender, about 5 minutes.
Drain the linguine and transfer to a large serving platter; keep the linguine warm.
Stir the shrimp and clams into the sauce, and cook until the shrimp turn pink and the clam meat is slightly opaque, about 5 minutes. Drizzle lemon juice over the top of the sauce and stir to combine.
Mix in the lobster meat and allow to cook just until heated, about 1 minute (do not overcook). Adjust salt and black pepper, if desired.
Spoon the sauce and shellfish over the platter of cooked linguine, arranging the mussels in their shells, several shrimp, and lemon wedges decoratively around the edge of the platter. Top the sauce with shaved Parmesan cheese curls in the center of the sauce, and place 1 sprig of parsley in the center for garnish.
