seafood spaghetti


Spaghetti (2 servings) – (£0.20)

Prawns 200g – frozen, from a 500g bag (£1.50)

Smoked Salmon 50g – £0.65

Rocket – handful – from garden (£ree)

Lettuce leaves – two handfuls (£ree)

Cherry tomatoes – £0.60

Creme fraiche – scrapings from pot – £0.20

Olives – 12 – £0.30

Brie – 20g – £0.15 (@75p/100g)

Balsamic vinegar / olive oil – splash

Total cost: £3.60



First brought a pan of slightly salted water to the boil before adding the spaghetti.  Once it was boiling again, the hob was turned off and the residual heat used to cook it until al dente.

There was also a side salad to go with this, with the lettuce leaves, roughly chopped, cherry tomatoes, olives and thin slices of brie. A drizzle of balsamic vinegar and olive oil, and a grind of pepper finished it off.

When the spaghetti was cooked, it was drained and then put back in the pan, along with the prawns and the smoked salmon which was sliced into small pieces.  Finally in went the rocket and the creme fraiche (using up yesterday’s pot).  Topped off with a grind of pepper and plated up.

No leftovers tonight…


Washing up count: One saucepan, chopping board, knife, colander, wooden spoon, spaghetti spoon (extravagance!) = 6.
