Seafood Spaghetti Recipe

Using the oven to bake the seafood is an effortless and splatter-free way of cooking. The seafood juices collected in the baking dish adds a touch of umami deliciousness to this light-tasting seafood pasta.

Serves: 2

Prep Time: 10 mins

Cook Time: 15 mins

Ingredients

  • 250 grams clams (such as lala, asari, manila)
  • 6 large prawns shells (leaving tail end) & veins removed
  • 6 large scallops
  • 1/2 tbsp garlic powder optional
  • 40 grams butter cubed
  • 5 cloves garlic sliced thinly
  • 120 grams spaghetti
  • chilli flakes to taste
  • 1 tsp dried chopped parsley
  • 1-2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • salt & freshly cracked black pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Scrub the clams thoroughly with a hard bristles brush. Soak the clams in salted water for at least an hour for the clams to purge out sand and impurities. Drain the water, rinse the clams and set aside.
  2. Arrange washed clams, prawns and scallops to occupy one layer of a wide oven-safe baking dish. Season with salt, black pepper and garlic powder. Scatter butter and sliced garlic over the seafood.
  3. Bake in pre-heated oven of 200°C (392°F) for 15 minutes. Discard any clams that remain closed after cooking.
  4. While baking, cook spaghetti in a pot of salted boiling water. Drain cooked pasta and reserve a cup of pasta water.
  5. Add cooked spaghetti to the seafood casserole. Mix well and season to taste with salt, pepper, parsley and chilli. If the pasta is too dry, add some pasta water to help bind the ingredients together. Drizzle some extra virgin olive oil as a finishing touch before serving.

      Hi beanie, oven-safe crockery will usually be indicated with appropriate stickers or logos; they can withstand higher heat than normal crockery. I buy all sorts of brands. I usually use unsalted butter but all kinds will do

    No effort but still full of tastes and flavors, right? I can’t agree more that this is a great idea, who knows we were cooking this way : ).
