Pasta with seafood
Pasta con frutta di mare
If you ever come across a fishmonger selling a mixture of fresh fish, mussels, prawns and octopuses, you should definitely buy some and make your own pasta with seafood.
In Denmark, fish are prohibitively expensive which may explain why it is treated with great reverence. For this reason – I guess – I’ve never seen the kind of seafood mixture made from all kinds of fresh bits and pieces and commonly sold in Italy as frutta di mare for pasta, risotto or antipasti.
In this mixture I detected tuna, prawns, lobster, clams, different kinds of octopus, different kinds of mussels, crabs, pieces of white fish fillet and different kinds of blue fish fillets. In other words, a bit of everything on the fisherman’s counter that morning. If you can’t get hold of similar mixture, you can make your own from whatever fish you can buy.
