Nunu's Kitchen - Seafood pasta

Apparently a lot of people are turned off by cooking due to long cooking times. Let me assure you, yummy food can be made in a very short period of time. Case in point - this pasta only took 20mins to prepare and cook.

Seafood Pasta:

You will need:
  • Pasta - boil in salted water and drain. Mix in a little olive oil to stop them from sticking to each other.
  • Assorted frozen/fresh seafood - You can use shrimp, mussels, calamari, clams, scallops, anything really! I used frozen merely because they are cheap and convenient. Defrost under running water and drain as much as possible.
  • 1 tin diced tomatoes - drain and reserve juices.
  • Assorted vegetables - I used peppers and frozen veggie medley. Once again, just use whatever you have in your fridge! Peas, carrots, celery, courgettes, onions etc.
  • 2 bay leaves.
  • 1/3 tsp fennel seeds
  • 1 tsp crushed garlic
  • Salt and pepper to taste.
  • Small bunch of Coriander - chopped coarsely.
La Methode:
  • Olive oil and garlic in pan - high heat until garlic is fragrant.
  • Add vegetables to pan - saute for 1 or 2 minutes.
  • Add drained diced tomatoes, fennel seeds and bay leaves to pan - medium heat, simmer for a few minutes.

  • Add assorted seafood. Add prawns LAST! don't be stupid like me -__-. Cover pan with lid and let simmer until seafood is cooked. Add salt and pepper if needed.

  • Add drained pasta to pan, add chopped coriander, toss and eat.
