Seafood Pasta Recipe Ideas
Who doesn't love pasta? Delicious, filling, and easy to prepare, pasta is one of the most versatile dishes out there. While there's nothing wrong with classic spaghetti and meatballs, we love a good seafood pasta recipe. We've rounded up a few of our favorites. Try one out for your next pasta night!
Creamy, rich pasta with the mouthwatering deliciousness of Alaskan King Crab will make you feel like royalty. This tagliatelle recipe is like magic: pasta made from scratch, a white wine sauce, and chilis, garlic, and parsley. You deserve to eat this.
If you're looking for something with a bit more of a comfort food feel, you can't go wrong with this Alaskan King Crab macaroni and cheese. All we can say is - try it as soon as you can!
We love a good shrimp scampi and shrimp fettuccine but for something a bit different, we suggest trying this Cajun shrimp pasta. With a sauce made from heavy cream and parmesan cheese poured over Cajun-seasoned grilled shrimp, it's sure to make your mouth water throughout the cooking process.
And how about a nice shrimp chow mein? This is also a great way to mix in whatever vegetables you have on hand. We like yakisoba noodles with shrimp, cabbage, onion, and celery but the experimentation possibilities are endless. Bonus: a simple but delicious two-ingredient sauce (of soy and oyster sauces).
You might tend to think of salmon best as grilled or smoked, but why not try it over pasta? A simple sauce of white wine, heavy cream, butter, garlic and lemon over a plate of linguine with capers, spinach and flakes of salmon is sure to spice up your pasta night.
We also love fusilli with a fresh basil pesto and grilled salmon for a new twist. Don't forget the parmesan cheese and a lemon squeeze to finish it off. We recommend adding red pepper flakes or a splash of your favorite hot sauce if you like things on the spicy side.
Did you know you can make a creamy pasta sauce without using heavy cream? If you're looking for a lighter dish, try using the pasta water to thicken your sauce instead. Salmon penne with sundried tomatoes is rich and satisfying without being too heavy. Sauté garlic and shallots in olive oil with red pepper flakes, salt and pepper. Add white wine, freshly squeezed lemon juice and lemon zest to your reserved pasta water. Then, toss in the sundried tomatoes and freshly torn basil. So delicious you won't even miss the heavy cream.
Whichever seafood pasta option you go with, we hope you enjoy. Bon appétit!
