NADIA SAWALHA & KAYE ADAMS’ SEAFOOD PASTA
● 250g mussels ● 3tbsp olive oil ● 25g butter ● 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped ● 1/2 tsp fresh red chilli, chopped ● 1/2 tsp smoked hot paprika ● 300g cherry tomatoes ● 250g cooked large prawns ● 2tbsp fresh flat-leaf parsley, chopped ● 375g tagliatelle ● Lemon wedges, to serve
STEP 1 Wash the mussels and carefully remove any beards (the hairy bits!) with a small, sharp knife. Sit the mussels in cold water and, after 10 mins, discard any open ones. STEP 2 Put the olive oil and butter into a frying pan and, once the butter begins to foam, stir in the garlic and chilli, and sauté until soft. Mix in the paprika, then add the tomatoes. Simmer for 10 mins until the tomatoes have broken down, then stir in the prawns and parsley. STEP 3 Place the tagliatelle in a pan of boiling, salted water and cook according to the packet instructions. STEP 4 Drain the cooked pasta. Discard any mussels that haven’t opened, then mix the seafood sauce with the pasta. Serve immediately with lemon wedges on the side.
