Lobster and Seafood Pasta | Recipe

May 17, 2016

A lover of simple pasta dishes and this recipe I’m going to share today is definitely a simple recipe to cook. However, I decided to make it fancy with the addition of some wonderful seafood to create my Seafood Pasta dish.

This month Iceland are celebrating their latest frozen ranges and their value for money, conveniencequality and choice. Given a lot of options I’ve chosen to create a recipe which embraces the choice at Iceland which often leaves you thinking “I didn’t expect to find that!” Their Luxury Uncooked Canadian Lobster Tails at Β£9.99 are a brilliant example of the excellent quality available at Iceland, they definitely don’t taste like they’ve come from a freezer.

Ingredients
  1. 1tbsp Frozen garlic
  2. 1tbsp Frozen chilli (less dependent on how spicy you want it)
  3. 1dsp Olive oil
  4. 150g Cherry tomatoes, blended in a food processor
  5. 200g Iceland frozen mixed seafood, defrosted
  6. 2 Iceland lobster tails, defrosted
  7. 200g Pasta
Instructions
  1. Cook the pasta as per packet instructions, whilst this is going on get the the sauce made.
  2. Also cook the lobster tails, I chose to simmer for 8-9mins instead of grilling.
  3. Fry the garlic and chilli in the olive oil until fragrant.
  4. Blend the cherry tomatoes and add into the mix, if it's too thick add in some of the pasta cooking water.
  5. At the end add in the seafood and cook until heated through.
  6. Throw the cooked pasta in and toss in the sauce.
  7. Serve the pasta and sauce into bowls with some ground pepper over the top, then halve the lobster tails and place on top.
  8. Enjoy!
Notes
  1. You don't have to use seafood, why not add in roast vegetables into the sauce instead for a vegan/vegetarian sauce?

I also used the frozen garlic and chilli from Iceland, which was incredibly convenient and made this dinner so easy to make. The cherry tomatoes were about to go off so this was the absolute perfect way to use them up. I was also very impressed with the quality not just of the lobster tails but also the frozen mixed seafood from Iceland, you wouldn’t have known if I hadn’t have told you that they were frozen! I served my Lobster and Seafood Pasta dish with an ice cold glass of Italian Gavi wine, this was the perfect alternative Sunday lunch. Mr W was very happy to be handed a bowl of this!

What do you think of my Lobster and Seafood Pasta? Have I persuaded you to try some frozen items next time you cook? Let me know in the comments,

    Another option for a frozen lobster tail is the fish society, they have Caribbean lobster which I personally love. I haven’t tried the Canadian so can’t say it is better or worse – just good πŸ™‚ I think they are a different species too…. Also, do you find that the frozen chili isn’t as spicy as fresh chili?

    I love the frozen seafood they have, always use it in my paella.I don’t drive and the only food shops in town are the indoor market (great for fruit and veg) and M&S and Sainsbury’s local. I can’t afford to do a weekly shop in M&S and iceland do free delivery for over Β£20, amazing! I recommend their big freezer bag of kale, chuck it in pasta dishes like its spinach and the bread, eggs and milk are super cheap there. I think frozen food can be looked down on a little but its very economical and I waste a lot less than I do with fresh food. I will definitely be trying this at home πŸ™‚

    This looks AMAZING. I don’t eat shellfish but you are totally making me want to!

      The joy is you don’t need too. Change the stock, roast some veggies and make it vegetarian instead πŸ™‚ Or use chicken! This recipe is so wonderfully versatile x

    Fantastic recipe! I have never tried lobster but this makes it look simple and delicious. Would you have this to spice up a midweek dinner or as a special treat? x

    • Reply MissPond May 17, 2016 at 5:38 pm

      You could do it for either occasion! Given the fab price of the lobster it would make a wonderful midweek treat.

    I’ve never tried lobster before but this looks so yummy, I especially love the pasta you added in – I’ve got a thing for all of the different shapes they come in! πŸ˜€ Will definitely have to give this a go at some point. I’ve always found Iceland to be pretty good on their frozen range too – they were a bit of a godsend during the university years because of their pricing, and I managed to make some nice dishes with their range too. I also love the fact there’s chilli and garlic in this too, two of my favourite flavour combinations! – Tasha

      Lobster is wonderful, you should give it a go! I’ve only really discovered Iceland and it’s a bit of a revelation for me πŸ™‚

    Very nice but I don’t like lobster. Sorry. xx

    • Reply MissPond May 17, 2016 at 11:28 am

      You don’t have to make it with seafood πŸ™‚ I reckon it would be very nice with roasted veg and the cherry tomato/garlic/chilli mix!

    oooh I love lobster I think I will try this recipe but adapt to either gluten free pasta or courgette spaghetti! xx

    • Reply MissPond May 17, 2016 at 11:27 am

      I reckon it would go really well with courgetti, just add it in last so you don’t over cook it!

    Where did you get your spaghetti from?!?! This looks yum!

    • Reply MissPond May 17, 2016 at 11:26 am

      It’s tesco finest, picked it because of the funky shape!

      • Reply Elsa Lee May 19, 2016 at 3:22 pm

        I would have done exactly the same!

  • Reply Mellissa May 17, 2016 at 7:49 am

    This looks totally delicious. I must admit I don’t cook seafood at home as my husband doesn’t like it but I would make this for my son and I

      You can always make it with roast vegetables instead of seafood πŸ™‚
