FabHow Tips

  • You can use any seafood you want; shrimps and prawns will be great for this seafood pasta recipe.
  • You can substitute the spaghetti pasta with other types of pasta like linguine, fettuccine, rigatoni or penne.
  • This seafood paste recipe uses a tomato-based sauce. You can substitute it with a white sauce made using clam chowder, milk and Parmesan cheese. Blend 1 can of clam chowder, 1 cup of milk and ½ cup of grated Parmesan with 2 garlic cloves to get a smooth paste. Instead of adding the chopped tomatoes, add chopped mushrooms and replace the tomato juice with the prepared white sauce.
  • You can also add the cooked pasta to the seafood sauce after adding the herbs and cook for 3 to 4 minutes for enhanced flavor.
