A trendy Italian pasta dish made with the freshest seafood you can get your hands on. Perfection! What is also good about the recipe is its nutritional value. If we consider one serving size, you'll get vitamins A, C, and Calcium with Iron! 

You can use all clams or shrimp, add lobster tails even, whatever rocks your tastebuds and looks fresh at the market that day. Baby sea scallops would also make an incredible addition to the sea mix.

The real mystery here is not to overcook the seafood! Because nobody likes rubbery shrimp or squid or scallops, right?! So keep a close eye on it at all times. It is not the time to watch a movie.

This fancy-looking dinner is one of the most amazing meals usually served during the Feast of Seven Fishes. But it's also so leisurely to make that you can have it on the table in 30 minutes. We swear on our saffron!

How to make

Please follow the next steps:

  1. 1

  2. 2

    Drain and reserve 1 cup of the salty pasta water, and put it aside.

    Meanwhile, heat your largest skillet on medium-low flame.

  4. 4

    Add some olive oil, minced garlic, and red pepper.

  5. 5

    Set in the clams and mussels and toss them well.

  6. 6

    Cook for about 1 minute or until the clams start to open.

  7. 7

    Add the clams to the skillet with shrimps and stir it—cover and cook for another minute.

    Once all the mussels and clams have opened and the shrimp is almost cooked, add the squid tentacles. Cook until they curl up.

  9. 9

    Taste for seasonings. Add more sea salt if needed.

    Meanwhile, warm up the sauce in a saucepan. Pour the Arrabiata sauce over the seafood, tossing to coat well.

  11. 11

    Add the cooked spaghetti pasta to the skillet with the seafood, tossing to coat in the sauce.

  14. 14

    Serve hot with lemon slices on the side (if desired).

Weight Loss Tips

  • Weight your grains or pasta before cooking: In this case, it's much easier to count how many calories you've got from your porridge.

  • The closer the ingredient to the beginning of the ingredient list, the higher its concentration in the product.

  • When you check the calorie content of food, pay attention to the calories per 100 g and not calories per serving. It will show you how calorie-dense the product is.
