5 diners 30m Main course Low difficulty Additional features: Medium cost Ingredients:
- 250 grams of spaghetti
- 4 small cuttlefish
- ¼ red onion
- 1 piece of leek
- ½ kilogram of clams
- 1 pinch of salt
- 2 cloves of garlic
- 1 chilli (hot chili)
Steps to follow to make this recipe: 1
We peel and chop the garlic cloves, chop the chilli and sauté both ingredients in a frying pan with a jet of hot oil. Then, add the onion and leek finely chopped and sauté. In parallel, we cook the pasta following the instructions on the package (about 8-10 minutes).
When the onion is transparent, we add the cuttlefish cut in cubes of the same size and stir. Let it cook for a few minutes over medium heat, moving from time to time so that the ingredients are integrated. Drain the spaghetti when al dente and reserve them to continue with the pasta recipe with cuttlefish and clams.
Add the clams washed, we cover the pan and let it cook for about three minutes so that they open. Then we uncover and move. It will not be necessary to add any liquid, since cuttlefish and clams will release their own juice, however, you can always add a splash of white wine if desired. Likewise, you can try the sofrito to decide if it is necessary or not to incorporate a pinch of salt.
Add the pasta and mix. If we consider that it lacks salt, we add the quantity to taste. For this recipe for cuttlefish and clams we have opted for cuttlefish spaghetti, but you can use any other type of pasta.
And ready! We immediately serve the pasta with cuttlefish and clams to taste this delicious hot dish. This is a very simple and fast way to enjoy the flavors of the sea. If we want, we can add prawns or mussels taking into account that the mussels will be added with the clams and prawns before the pasta. We can accompany this recipe with a surimi salad and prepare a lemon dessert, which fits perfectly with the menu.
