Ultimate Seafood Spaghetti

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.

Serves 4


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.
