Nothing says Italian like a good pasta dish. Use your favourite seafood varieties in this quick and easy meal.
I have added the garlic crumbs for a bit of crunchy texture and large prawns for “wow” factor.
- 6 small portions fresh egg pappardelle pasta or similar
- ¼ cup olive oil
- 5-6 anchovies
- 2 tsp capers
- 250g raw prawns
- 250g seafood mix
- 12 scallops
- Sea salt
- Lemon wedges
- 6 large prawns, cooked, for garnish (optional)
- ½ cup fresh breadcrumbs, toasted
- 1 clove garlic, crushed
- Handful fresh herbs (Italian parsley, thyme, rosemary), roughly chopped
1 Cook the pasta according to the packet directions.
2 Meanwhile, heat the oil and add the anchovies and capers. Add the prawns, seafood mix and scallops, then cook for 4-5 minutes until tender.
3 Drain the pasta and toss with the seafood, adding a drizzle of oil, sea salt, a squeeze of lemon and the large prawns.
4 Combine the breadcrumbs, garlic and herbs, and sprinkle over the pasta before serving.
