Well this turned out to be a real treat. And both Charlie and I enjoyed it very much. You can mix and match the seafood to your liking, this just happened to be what I found that day.
2 onions or 4 banana shallots - finely chopped
5 cloves garlic - finely chopped
2 tins tomatoes or passata
1 red chilli - finely chopped (optional)
2 whole squid - cleaned and cut into rings
200g raw prawns
100g queen scallops
100 grams cooked white crabmeat
2 handfuls chopped herbs - parsley, basil, dill or coriander
200g dried spaghetti
Sauté the onions on a low heat until soft and sweet. Add the garlic and cook for 2 minutes. Add the tomatoes and chilli, bring to a simmer, seasoning generously and cook on a very low heat for 20 minutes.
Place a large pan of water on for the pasta. When boiling add salt then the pasta and cook 2 minutes less than pack instructions. Make sure you reserve a little of the cooking water.
Add the raw seafood and when the prawns as pink stir through the crabmeat. Toss with the pasta and a little of the reserved pasta water check for seasoning and sprinkle with herbs. Serve immediately.
