ANGEL HAIR PASTA WITH SEAFOOD
Fried calamari rings with fragrant basil and fresh-picked Florida rock shrimp. Seafood platter including calamari rings, scallops, shrimp, and mussels.
When I was a student in San Francisco, my roommate taught me to make spaghetti. At one point in our long relationship, when we were both working together to make our own food in San Francisco, I was responsible for Malaysian and Chinese cuisine, and she was responsible for western cuisine.
For dinner, she prepared delicious mashed potatoes (made from scratch!) and spaghetti. Back then, we didn’t eat seafood-loaded pasta, but hers was always delicious, made with simple ingredients like unpeeled straw mushrooms, chicken or shrimp. It was a simple, straightforward, and practical meal. It was a boon to our finances during the dot-bomb era.
Because of this, I am sure she would be astonished if she were to read this post today and see what I’ve learned about cooking.
As a result, I’ve refined my Italian pasta recipe and added all of our favorite seaside fruits to the mix. If I had to guess, I’d say she’d ask for another serving.
A 5-star cuisine can be made at any time by combining calamari rings, scallops, shrimp, mussels, cherry tomatoes, and freshly plucked sweet basil leaves.
