Seafood Pasta FAQ
Seafood pasta is an exquisite dish that can be personalized to suit different tastes. However, it is quite common for people to harbor a sense of intimidation when attempting to make it at home due to the perceived complexity involved in handling and cooking seafood and achieving the perfect pasta texture. Often, people overcook the seafood, resulting in a rubbery texture, and overcooked or undercooked pasta is another common issue. Knowing the right order to add your seafood to the pan and which degree of doneness to aim for each type can significantly improve this dish's outcome. Secrets to making a stunning seafood pasta include using quality ingredients, not overcooking your seafood, and reserving some of the pasta water to thicken your sauce. If you want to add an extra luxury feeling to the dish, add a splash of white wine to your sauce or use homemade seafood stock instead of water. Remember also that adding salt to your pasta water can greatly enhance the overall taste of the dish.
