Seafood Aglio Olio

06 June 2019 - "一个人吃饭"

Today's special. Cooked this simple aglio olio specially for a VIP 😊 I have used my existing mushroom aglio olio recipe and add on seafood.

I have replaced swiss mushroom with shitake mushroom and added some fresh herbs from my garden

Detail method of cooking spaghetti is found in my recipe for Bolognese Spaghetti.

3 large prawns
3 fresh scallops
1 shitake mushroom -sliced
4 cloves of garlic - chopped
1-2 tablespoons olive oil
4-5 leaves sweet basil
1 stalk spring onion - chopped
1 chilli padi - remove seeds, chopped(optional)

100g -125g  spaghetti
Water for cooking spaghetti
1 tablespoon of oil
2 tsp salt

1. Cook the spaghetti in boiling salted  water(added oil) according to packet instructions and drain  thoroughly. Set aside. Note : keep 1/2 cup of water after boiling the spaghetti.

2. Clean and deshell prawns. Washed scallop. Seasoned prawns and scallop with a pinch of salt and some pepper. Set aside.

3.In a clean wok/frying pan , pan sear both prawns and scallops until they are cooked and lightly brown. Remove from heat and set aside.

4.Fry garlic in olive oil until fragrance and golden brown.  Remove fried garlic into a bowl, leave  the oil in the wok. Add mushrooms in the wok to fry for 30sec then add cooked spaghetti. If it is too dry, add a little water from boiling the pasta. Add a pinch of salt or 1 tsp of fish sauce to adjust to your taste. Add chopped onion and chopped basil. Add the fried garlic. Add chopped chilli if you like spicy pasta. Stir well. Remove from heat. 
Serve with pan seared prawns and scallop.
