Squid ink pasta with seafood


500 gr (1 packet) black pasta – spaghetti or tagliatelle

2 tablespoons olive oil

4/5 cups canned coconut milk

200 gr seafood mixed (shrimp, calamari, mussels, scallops)

1 clove lemon grass chopped

1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger

1 fresh onion finely chopped

1 clove of garlic grated

1/4 cup whipping cream

Salt and pepper


Step 1:

Boil the black pasta in a saucepan with a lot of hot salted water until it becomes al dente. Drain and return it to the pot with a few tablespoons of its water to stay warm.

Step 2:

In the meantime, saute the olive oil in a large, deep pan with onion, garlic and the lemongrass until they wither. Add the seafood and ginger and cook for 2-3 minutes.

Step 3:

Pour in the coconut milk and cream, let it warm, add the pasta and mix it carefully until the sauce is tied. Salt the pasta and serve it immediately.
