Chilli Seafood Pasta


While we are on the topic of being inspired by bloggers-this dish was inspired by Tigerfish. Rather, she submitted this dish for Presto Pasta Nights a loooong time ago and I have been eyeing it since. It was so long ago that I can't even find the link!!

So when I spotted a packet of Prima Deli Chili Crab Premix on the shelves of my favourite oriental store (Chan Brothers on High Road for those in Perth!), it went into my basket straight away.

Who says Chili Crab Pre mix is for chili crab? It's for pasta and seafood too!!

While the premix did not resemble the glorious chilli crabs that we enjoyed in Singapore or Malaysia, it certainly suits a pasta dish. Do not underestimate the chili powder that they provide in the packet. It hit me 3 seconds after bitting into the pasta. yum!


Chilli Seafood Pasta (serves 4)
250grams of fettucine
5 baby squids
3 fish fillets
handful of shrimps
2 cups of chopped mushrooms
1 cup of baby spinach leaves
3 cloves of garlic minced
1/4-1/2 cup of water

1 packet of Prima Deli Chilli Crab Premix
2 eggs

1) Boil water and cook pasta. Drain and set aside.

2) Saute garlic in a pan. Add seafood and fry quickly. Remember the mushrooms and spinach leaves. Follow premix directions and add sauce sachet. Add eggs and chili powder. Quickly toss pasta with the sauce, adding some water if the mixture appear too dry. Serve with a squeeze of lemon juice.

Oh yes yes...the chili crab premix...I love it with pasta! Too bad, I did not add real crabs into my "chilli crab" gravy too. If you serve 4, do you find too little gravy for each serving of pasta or was it just nice? Just curious coz yours don't look like a lot of gravy. Hope it turn out well for you.

Chan Brothers? I thought it is the Singapore travel agent! LOL!

BTW, I usually just use half the pack of chili powder. The remains I keep it in the fridge for other use :P

It does have me drooling. I wonder if I can find the chili crab premix here in Halifax or if I have to order on line? One way or the other...I'll be making this soon.

Thanks for sharing with Presto Pasta Nights

Wow, this looks great! I love that the egg made everything all creamy. I wonder if we can get the premix here...

This recipe sounds great for my husband 'cause pasta and sea food are the best way to prevent dysfunctional problems. But if you didn't like it, you should invest your time visiting Viagra Online
