Seafood Spaghetti

19 Sep

Since I’m at home on a Monday afternoon (and resting), I might as well take this opportunity to update this food blog. First up, this is a series of the birthday menu that I came up with this year. The theme was all things Italian and of course, I did some minor alterations to the recipes.

Not bad considering that I was cooking all these during the fasting month 🙂

Here’s another one for my pasta collection; Seafood Spaghetti. This has got to be one of the easiest that I have ever cooked but this might be a lil bit too dry for some folks. Just add more of the wet ingredients and you’re good to go.


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 400 gm canned tomatoes
  • 1 litre chicken stock
  • 1 packet spaghetti (or any pasta of your choice)
  • 1 pack of frozen seafood mix (mussels, prawns, salmon & squids), defrosted
  • Parsley leaves, chopped


Cook spaghetti in a large pot of salted boiling water till al dente. Drain and then set it aside.

Heat the oil in a large frying pan, then saute the onion and garlic over a medium heat for 5 mins until soft. Add the paprika, tomatoes and stock, then bring to the boil.

Turn down the heat to a simmer, stir in the cooked spaghetti and cook for 7 mins, stirring occasionally to stop the pasta from sticking. Stir in the seafood, cook for 3 mins more until it’s all heated through and the pasta is cooked, then season to taste. Sprinkle with parsley before serving.
