Traditional Italian Style -


  • 4 Tblspns quality olive oil

  • 1 T crushed garlic

  • 250g dry spaghetti

  • 1/2 tspn salt

  • 12 green prawns with tails on

  • 8 mussels

  • 12 scallops

  • 2 squid tubes cut into rings

  • freshly cracked black pepper

  • 2 Tblspns Italian parsley roughly chopped

  • salt to taste

  • 125 mls cream (optional)


  • 1.

    Place spaghetti in boiling water & heat olive oil in a large wok or frypan. When oil starts to smoke, add the prawns, scallops & garlic, seasoning with a liberal amount of ground black pepper.

  • 2.

    When garlic begins to brown, add mussels & when they begin to open, add the squid. The juice from the mussels & other seafood will combine with the oil to make the sauce for the dish. From the moment the seafood is added to the oil - until this stage - should only be about 2-3 mins. using a powerful stove top. (Otherwise use two pans, diving ingredients between the two.

  • 3.

    Drain pasta well & addit to pan. While mixing it through the seafood, add oysters, parsley & salt to taste.

  • 4.

    If liked, stir through the cream, & sprinkle with parmesan to serve.

I keep bags of good quality seafood in the freezer and capture the juices whilst thawing to use in the dish.
