Seafood spaghetti á la Jamie Oliver

Hey my hungry friends out there ;)

Today I want to share my favourite seafood recipe with you. I love Jamie Oliver's version, because the combination of seafood, dried tomatoes and fresh lemon juice just gives it the perfect mediterranean touch :)


  • 455 g spaghetti
  • sea salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1-2 dried red chillies, crumbled
  • 400 g seafood (deep-frozen or fresh)
  • 1 small wineglass white wine
  • 2 heaped tablespoons sun-sried tomato puree, or 6 sun-dried tomatoes blitzed in a blender
  • juice and zest of 1 lemon
  • optional: 2 handfuls rocket, roughly chopped and/or some basil

I'll just share Jamie Olivers original recipe instructions with you:
Cook your spaghetti in a large pan of salted boiling water according to the packet instructions. Meanwhile, heat 3 good lugs of extra virgin olive oil in a large frying pan and toss in the garlic and chilli. As the garlic begins to colour, add the seafood and sauté them for a minute. Add the white wine and the tomato purée and simmer for a couple of minutes. When the pasta is ready, drain it in a colander, reserving a little of the cooking water. Toss the spaghetti with the sauce, squeeze in the lemon juice, add half the chopped rocket, adding a little of the reserved cooking water if you want to loosen the sauce a bit, and correct the seasoning. Divide between 4 plates and sprinkle with the grated lemon zest and the rest of the rocket leaves.

Bon appétit!
