Recipe type: Main
Cuisine: Italian
Serves: 4
  • 400gr fresh long pasta or regular spaghetti (I've used fresh spaghetti)
  • 1 small red onion, finely chopped
  • handful of cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 450gr frozen or fresh seafood mix (I've used Iceland Frutti di Mare mix)
  • 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • zest of half lemon
  • handful fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • handful fresh basil, finely chopped
  • sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper to taste
  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil.
  2. In the meantime, heat a large pan with the olive oil, over medium heat.
  3. Add in onion and tomatoes and cook, stirring often, for about 5 mins. Season to taste.
  4. Fold in the seafood mix and continue to cook for a further 5-6 mins, or until the seafood are cooked through.Season with salt and pepper to taste
  5. When the water boils, drop the pasta in and cook al dente, about 2-3 mins if using fresh pasta.
  6. Transfer the pasta into the pot with the seafood sauce and stir all ingredients together. Sprinkle with lemon zest, freshly chopped basil and parsley on top, and drizzle with a little bit of extra olive oil if you like. Serve immediately, family-style directly from the pot.
