Valencian seafood pasta


  • Cook the spaghetti in a large pot of lightly salted boiling water until almost al dente. Drain well, toss in a little oil and set aside.
  • Heat a little oil in a wok (or large non-stick pan) and briefly sauté the garlic – don’t colour!
  • Add the paprika and briefly cook, continually stirring, to toast.
  • Then add the tomatoes, 1½ cups stock, 1 heaped tbsp parsley and seasonings. Stir and cook for about 10-15 mins until fairly thick and fragrant.
  • Add the cooked pasta, toss well and briefly cook.
  • Then add the fish and mussels. Cover and gently cook, removing the mussels as they open and discarding any that don’t, adding the scallops at the very last minute.
  • Serve in large individual bowls with a sprinkling of parsley on top and good crusty bread on the side.
  • nb. Any variety of seafood can be used.
