    1. In a large pot pour about 4 and 1/4 cups of water and add salt (to taste) when it boils.

    4. In a non-stick frying pan, pour in half of the olive oil and 2 cloves of finely chopped garlic.

    6. Add half of the chopped coriander and the cherry tomatoes cut in half.
    7. Let the clams cook until they open (no more than 5 minutes).
    8. Once they are open, add the mixture from the frying pan to the spaghetti and stir it in.
    9. In the same frying pan, pour the remaining olive oil, add remaining garlic and as soon as the oil is hot, add the shrimp.
    10. Season with salt and the chopped chilli pepper and fry the shrimp for about 2 minutes (don't over cook them).
    11. Add this to the spaghetti and stir everything.
    12. Sprinkle with the rest of the chopped coriander and serve immediately.
