Spicy Shrimp and Garlic in Olive Oil Pasta

Hubby and I went to a restaurant called Seafood Island and we fell in love with their Spicy Garlic Shrimp in Olive Oil. I wasn't into photography that time yet so the review would come sometime in the future.

Curiosity got the better of me so I decided to venture into the kitchen to prepare some seafood pasta for hubby and I.

What you'll need:

125g of medium sized shrimps, de-shelled and de-veined
250g of pasta
1 whole garlic head, finely chopped
1 medium sized onion, chopped
3 pieces of medium sized tomatoes, diced
1 tablespoon of basil
1 tablespoon of thyme
1 tablespoon of coriander
3 tablespoons of olive oil
salt, pepper and cayenne pepper powder to taste

250g pasta cooked according to package directions

How to prepare

In a saucepan heat the olive oil over low heat. Once the oil is heated, put in the garlic and toast it until it becomes light brown. Remove some of the garlic from the pan and set it aside.

Put in the onions and wait for it to become clear before putting the tomatoes.

Saute them until the tomatoes are cooked.

Add the shrimps and the herbs (basil, thyme and coriander) and saute until the shrimps are well done.

Add the pepper, salt and cayenne pepper powder to taste.

To serve:

Arrange the pasta in a plate, top with your spicy shrimp sauce, cheese and some of the toasted garlic. Serve while warm.

When I made the dish, it turned out to be good for at least 4 medium sized servings. What is nice about the dish was that the herbs took out that "fishy" (malansa) aftertaste when eating seafood. The peppers added some corner to it which gave it a full bodied taste.
