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, convenience, quality 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 £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.
- 1tbsp Frozen garlic
- 1tbsp Frozen chilli (less dependent on how spicy you want it)
- 1dsp Olive oil
- 150g Cherry tomatoes, blended in a food processor
- 200g Iceland frozen mixed seafood, defrosted
- 2 Iceland lobster tails, defrosted
- 200g Pasta
- Cook the pasta as per packet instructions, whilst this is going on get the the sauce made.
- Also cook the lobster tails, I chose to simmer for 8-9mins instead of grilling.
- Fry the garlic and chilli in the olive oil until fragrant.
- Blend the cherry tomatoes and add into the mix, if it's too thick add in some of the pasta cooking water.
- At the end add in the seafood and cook until heated through.
- Throw the cooked pasta in and toss in the sauce.
- Serve the pasta and sauce into bowls with some ground pepper over the top, then halve the lobster tails and place on top.
- 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,
