I mean, I've always loved it. But recently I've developed a new-found love for it and I can't stop eating it. Prawns especially.
So what else would I do on a quiet Friday night at home except cook up a delicious seafood spaghetti dish? In all honesty, it was a bit of an experiment but it definitely paid off so I couldn't help but share it with you.
Don't like squid? Try it with just prawns. Or maybe just a white fish if you're feeling boring (soz). Either way... it'll be delicious!
Recipe (serves 1)
- 150g seafood marinara mix (prawns, squid, mussels and hoki/cod)
- 1 clove garlic, crushed
- 50g leeks
- 50g red capsicum
- 50g butternut pumpkin
- 5 cherry tomatoes
- 4 stems asparagus
- 25g diced bacon (leave out for vegetarians)
- 100g canned chopped tomatoes
- 1 tsp olive oil
- 25g edamame bean spaghetti
- 10g feta
- handful parsley, finely chopped
- salt/pepper, to taste
- 1 tsp paprika
- 1 tsp garlic powder
1) Prepare and chop all the veg into bite-sized pieces
2) Steam butternut pumpkin for 5 minutes until softened. Drain and leave to the side.
3) Heat oil in large frying pan before adding the bacon pieces and veg (garlic, leeks, capsicum, pumpkin, tomatoes, asparagus). Stir fry for 5-10 minutes.
4) Meanwhile, boil edamame bean spaghetti (I use 'Explore Cuisine'). Note: if you can't find this spaghetti you could use normal spaghetti or zucchini noodles instead.
5) Once veg has softened, add the herbs and spices and cook for another 2 minutes.
6) Add the seafood marinara mix and chopped tomatoes to the frying pan and cook for 5-10 minutes or until seafood is cooked.
7) Drain edamame bean spaghetti and add to frying pan to stir through seafood mixture.
