Seafood Arrabbiata Pasta Recipe

Ok, still no Italian and Mediterranean holiday so far. We’ll just have to keep settling with some at-home daydreaming until travel is fully opened up again. It’s not the real deal, obviously, but I whipped up this super quick seafood arrabbiata pasta the other day and I could almost imagine myself on holiday. It took a little British sunshine and setting up the dining table nicely by the window with a pretty sunset in view.

This recipe is quick to whip up. Convenience is a big word in my collection of recipes and this one is no exception. I used frozen mixed seafood that I picked up from the frozen aisle of Waitrose. I find the quality there is generally decent. The beauty of using these frozen packs is that I can be as spontaneous as I want. The long shelf-life in the freezer means I don’t have to worry much of a last-minute grocery run when a random craving happens. Of course, fresh seafood is welcomed and is always an edge better, but just saying!

How to make Seafood Arrabbiata Pasta

Ingredients:

  • Mixed Seafood – frozen packs would do the job. Thawing beforehand would be ideal but it’s also ok to cook from frozen. Check package instructions.
  • Pasta – any shape of your choice. I used Rigatoni here. Would recommend the likes of Linguine, Spaghetti, Angel Hair as well.
  • Tomato Passata
  • Garlic, Onion – the aromatics
  • Chilli Flakes – a little kick of heat
  • Salt – always for seasoning
  • Parsley – for garnish
  • Italian Hard Cheese – for topping! Vegetarian option available at Waitrose in substitution of Parmesan

Recipe notes:

  • If using frozen seafood, it’s best to check the package instructions whether you could be cooking directly from frozen. I personally prefer to thaw beforehand if time allows.
  • Tomato Passata is pureed and strained tomato, which makes a great thick tomato sauce for the pasta. You could use tinned chopped tomatoes as well but it would take a little longer time for it to break down and cook into a sauce.
