Easy Spaghetti Marinara

For those who think Spaghetti Marinara is a bit daunting to make this is for you…  This is the quickest way to put together this very impressive pasta dish.  With the availability of frozen prawn cutlets and scallops we always have the ingredients at hand to make a Marinara. The zest of the lemon gives this a lovely tang.   The white wine and oil make a lovely sauce and an additional ladle of pasta water gives a glossy sheen.  When the spaghetti is tossed though it soaks up the delicious juices… Always remember no seafood pasta has parmesan cheese on it!

The amount shown will feed two greedy people…

Spaghetti Marinara

Ingredients:

1 large clove of garlic grated

1 generous teaspoon of Sambal Oelek (or a long red chilli minced finely)

6 large raw prawns

6 raw scallops

Approx. 500g of firm white fish (such as Gummy Shark)

2 tablespoons of good olive oil

1 tablespoon White Wine

Grated rind of 1 lemon

Salt & pepper to taste

Finely chopped parsley

Handful of dried spaghetti

Method:

In a large pot, heat salted water until boiling briskly

Throw in spaghetti and cook until al dente

In the meantime heat a large pan and gently fry the garlic and chilli in olive oil

Cut the fish into bite sized pieces and gently fry for a few minutes or until almost cooked

Toss in the prawns & scallops and gently combine

Add the white wine and lemon rind and sauté until the seafood is cooked though

A spoonful or two of the pasta water can be added in to make the sauce glossy

Add in the fresh parsley

Drain the pasta well and add to the seafood mixture tossing gently until combined

Serve piping hot

 

Bon Appetit!  🙂
