did a very good seafood alio olio this evening on 7.8.2016. ^^

i have not done this for a really long time.

mainly because my helper does an excellent alio olio. she usually uses prawns & sliced chicken breast. on balance i think her best would still edge out my dish tonight.

still my seafood alio olio was very good tonight. 🙂

i browned the garlic cloves on medium fire. fantastic aroma…added cut chilli padi.

then added prawns & squid seasoned with fish sauce & white pepper.

then added chicken stock.

i removed the prawns & squid then reduced the stock. tasted it, was tasty & intense. i did not add white wine & sugar this evening.

then i added back the prawns & squid, off fire, added the spaghetti & tossed.

last, i added some butter, so the spaghetti & sauce mixed very well.

i topped it with some basil.

the result was a very tasty pasta.

daughter commented the sotong (squid) was excellent, just the perfect texture. so was the prawn!

& i like the spicy tinge from the chilli padi.

a simple dish & enough for 3pax on a sunday evening.
