Seafood Pasta!! A Simple Healthy Recipe!

Posted on

We all love seafood pasta in our family except for my youngest daughter, Madeline.  But she now lives far away in Alberta with her husband so she won’t have to “suffer” through this meal.  So tonight I thought I would make this easy delicious and healthy dish.

Michele’s Seafood Pasta

3/4 pound (375g) dried pasta of your choice, I used Gluten-free Spaghettini

1 Tbsp olive oil

1 Tbsp butter

3 garlic cloves finely minced

1/4 tsp dried red pepper flakes

2 chopped tomatoes

1/2 cup white wine

3/4 cup pasta cooking liquid

1 tsp dried basil

1 tsp dried marjoram

1/2 tsp lemon zest

salt and pepper to taste

1 pound (454g) fresh or frozen seafood of your choice(I used Tilapia cut into chunks, and peeled frozen shrimp)

1/4 cup Parmesan cheese

Cook pasta according to package directions until al dente.

Drain pasta, keep warm and reserve 3/4 cup of cooking liquid.  Preheat oil and butter in a sauté pan over medium heat.  Add garlic and red pepper flakes and sauté for 1 minute.  Add tomatoes, white wine, cooking liquid, herbs, lemon zest and seasonings.  Reduce heat to medium low and simmer til sauce is slightly reduced.

Add fish cubes and shrimp and simmer lightly until fish is just cooked.  Add drained pasta and Parmesan cheese and stir til pasta is coated.  Serve.  This is not a heavy cream sauce like many seafood pastas have, but light and fresh.  Enjoy.  Cheers, Michele
