Italian Pasta with White Seafood Sauce Recipe

Serves/Makes: 4 - 6

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 pound boneless whitefish fillets, cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 1/2 pound uncooked prawns (shrimps), peeled and deveined
  • 1/4 pound shelled scallops
  • 6 ounces small squid, cleaned
  • 8 mussels in their shells, cleaned
  • 12 ounces rigatoni (or your choice of Italian pasta)
  • 3 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 ounce butter
  • 4 tablespoons dry white wine
  • 1/2 cup whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon chopped Italian flat-leaf parsley
How to cook Italian Pasta with White Seafood Sauce:
  • Rinse the prawns and pat dry.
  • Remove the veins from the scallops but retain the coral if present.
  • Clean the squid and cut the bodies into rings; leave the tentacles whole.
  • Place the mussels in a dry saucepan, cover and cook over a medium heat for about 5 minutes, until they open; discard any that do not open. Cool, then drain, reserving any liquid given off by the mussels. Set aside.
  • Add the pasta to a large saucepan of lightly salted boiling water and boil, uncovered, until just tender (al dente*).
  • Meanwhile, heat a large frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add the oil and butter and heat until sizzling, but not browned.
  • Add the prawns and the whitefish pieces, and cook for 2 minutes, stirring often.
  • Add the scallops and squid and fry for about 2-3 minutes, until just cooked. Remove the seafood to a dish.
  • Add the wine, cream, parsley and mussel liquid and boil vigorously for 2-3 minutes until lightly thickend.
  • Return the seafood to the sauce with the mussels and heat through gently.
  • Drain the pasta. Spoon over the sauce, and arrange two mussels in shells on top of each serving.
