Herb Seafood Pasta

This herb seafood pasta recipe can be on the table in 20 minutes.

You can use fresh or dried dill - 1 teaspoon dried equals 1 tablespoon of fresh.

I would use fresh chives if at all possible, but if not, then the equivalents are the same.

You can use fresh cooked fish with this if you like or frozen crab meat, lobster pieces, mixed seafood cocktail.

It's almost storecupboard - the sort of meal you could put together quickly on vacation with just a two burner camping stove. 

Herb Seafood Pasta

  • 2 7 oz (200g) cans tuna in oil
  • 2 tablespoons or so of oil
  • 1 large onion - peeled and finely chopped
  • 1/2 lb (225g) chopped mushrooms
  • 4 tablespoons fresh chives
  • 3 tablespoons fresh dill
  • 1 Cup, 1/2 pint (200ml) thick yoghurt
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 18 oz (500g) pasta - dried or fresh
  • handful of frozen peas
  • parmesan cheese to serve

Drain the tuna.

Use about 2 tablespoons to begin with, but the mushrooms might absorb more.

Cook the onions until they're soft and golden, add the mushrooms and fry another minute or two.

Add the tuna, yoghurt, herbs and paprika.

Add a few twists of black pepper to taste.

Cook the pasta according to the instructions on the packet.

Heat the sauce, simmer gently and stir - try not to let it boil.

Serve with some freshly grated parmesan and maybe some crusty bread to mop up any stray juices.

Be careful not to let the mixture boil as the yoghurt could perhaps curdle and separate.

The pasta can be cooked in advance and refreshed.

I frequently cook the pasta early and then drain it. I then pour boiling water over it and leave it for 1 or 2 minutes to re-heat prior to serving.

It's easy to do and I don't think it affects the quality of the pasta at all.

500g of pasta is enough for four people - you can use whichever type you have - it doesn't matter.

If you would like to use different seafood, then feel free to experiment - a seafood cocktail (de-frost first) would work - canned seafood, crab meat, shrimp or frozen seafood.
