Seafood Arabbiata is an Italian dish and the word means angry as it’s a hot and fiery sauce that is not for the faint hearted. It is a simple dish to make and I’ve just made enough here for one person but just double up your ingredients to serve more.
You can’t beat pasta for comfort food, it’s filling and if you get your sauce right it is packed with flavour too. The problem with commercial pasta sauces is that they tend to be all sauce and no substance. I like to have my pasta dishes packed with real food not liquidised mush from a jar.
I’ve used a salmon fillet and a handful of prawns for my fishy content and my Arabbiata fieriness comes from red chilli. There is also mint, basil and parsley for added flavour.
So for a filling and tasty meal try my Seafood Arabbiata, I’m sure you’ll love it.
