Seafood and pasta make a great recipe combination. Recipes include fish, prawns, scallops and crab combined with creamy and tomato based sauces.
Fresh scallops, chopped tomatoes and fresh basil are added to pan fried garlic and zucchini, then served with linguine for a delish seafood pasta. Serve as a main course for 4 or as a starter for 6. As an alternative pasta try fettuccine or spaghetti.
You don't need fresh crab meat to make a delicious penne dish, tinned worked just as well and is much cheaper!
A simple salad that makes a great lunch or light dinner, tuna and pasta is combined with peas, hard-boiled eggs and mayonnaise.
This is a family favourite recipe, a delicious mix of tuna, macaroni, capsicum, celery, mayonnaise and mustard. A great side dish or light lunch.
Salmon is slowly poached in a creamy sauce before being served on a bed of al dente pasta garnished with Parmesan and dill.
This dish is one I make at least once a month. If you love crab and prawns and pasta, you'll love this linguine.
Spaghetti is served with sautéed onion, spring onion, pesto and tinned salmon. It is very easy to make and very satisfying to eat.
This dish lets the crab shine by keeping the sauce a simple “aglio e olio” - olive oil and garlic. The hardest part is cleaning the meat off the crab! I used a mud crab I caught, but any type of crab will do. This is my all time favorite crab recipe. If you have never cooked or cleaned crab, give it a go, can be a bit messy but it gets easier the next time, nothing beats fresh crab.
Pasta with tuna, celery, grape tomatoes and green olives smothered in creamy mayonnaise makes a tasty treat to bring to your next potluck or to serve at your next BBQ.
You can't beat the combination of tuna, olives and tomatoes. This dish is very easy to throw together and a staple in our house.
