seafood. eat it
it occurs to me i have not posted any recipes for a loooong time. probably because i always forget to take a photo before it’s too late and my plate is empty.
but, posting recipes and meal ideas is something i’m hoping to do more of. i find thinking of meals for the week super tedious, and i’m always looking for suggestions: i’m gonna go right ahead and just assume that you are too!
well, happy to help – here’s one i borrowed from the bbc’s good food website: 20 minute seafood pasta.
i adapted it of course, because i am just a bit super fussy and didn’t like the sounds of frozen seafood mix. or chicken stock. and i never have fresh parsley on hand. or lemons. also i added a pinch of chilli flakes. also i used less pasta, because there’s only 2 of us. also i had a mini garlic bread that needed using up so i bunged that on the plate too. well ANYWAY, the results were pretty damn nomalicious, and so i shall share them with you forthwith!
seafood pasta, adapted version
1 tbsp olive oil
1 onion, chopped
1 garlic clove, chopped (i always put a bit extra in, because i love garlic, and honestly, what use is 1 piddly little clove?)
1 tin of chopped tomatoes
1l vegetable stock
200g spaghetti, broken
150g fresh prawns
200g fresh white fish (we used haddock)
a pinch of chilli flakes
1. heat the oil in a large frying pan, and cook the onion and garlic over a medium heat for 5 minutes until soft. add in the paprika, tomatoes and stock, and bring to the boil.
2. reduce the heat to a simmer, stir in the spaghetti, and cook for about 7 minutes, stirring occasionally. sprinkle in the chilli flakes, add in the prawns and fish, and cook for about 5 minutes. when it’s all heated through and the spaghetti is cooked, season to taste, and serve. with optional garlic bread and another pinch of chilli, if you like things a bit hot and spicy!
3. you’re welcome.
