Ingredients

  • 1 lb Seafood Blend (shrimp, squid and scallops)
  • 8 oz. spaghetti
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 dashes ground black pepper
  • 1 cup bottled clam juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red peppers
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice or to taste
  • 6 cherry tomatoes, sliced into halves
  • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley

Instructions

  1. Rinse the Seafood Blend with cold water, drain and set aside. Pat dry with paper towels.

  2. Bring a pot of water to boil, cook the spaghetti according to package instructions until al dente. Drain and set aside.

  3. Heat up a skillet on medium heat. Add the olive oil and butter. Saute the garlic until light brown. Add the Seafood Blend and ground black pepper. Stir and cook until they are half done. Add the clam juice, salt, crushed red pepper and lemon juice. Adjust the flavor by adding more salt and lemon juice.

  4. Transfer the spaghetti into the skillet, stir to combine well with the Seafood blend. Add the cherry tomatoes and chopped parsley. Mix well with spaghetti. Turn off the heat and serve immediately.

Recipe Notes

You may use chicken broth if you do not have clam juice. For the Seafood Blend, I recommend Trader Joe's Seafood Blend. You may add mussels and/or clams to the seafood. You may also buy other frozen mixed seafood packet.

Add a few tablespoons of white wine to the sauce if you want.
