Valentine’s Day Recipe: Pasta Mare
If you’re planning on cooking up something extra special this Valentine’s Day, then Maurizio from Salvi’s is at hand with a delicious Valentine’s day special – Pasta Mare.
It is made with different types of seafood, in a simple sauce and Scialatielli.
Scialatielli is a pasta from Naples which is thicker and shorter than spaghetti and holds on to the sauce really well.
As with any of the dishes at Salvi’s, the importance is the quality of ingredients, which only need simple cooking to allow their flavour to shine through. The seafood is complemented with a simple sauce of olive oil, garlic, chilli, parsley, fresh tomatoes and tinned cherry tomatoes.
The tinned tomatoes are of the very best quality and are imported in from Salvi’s specialist producers in Italy – they are packed with flavour and investing in top quality ingredients like this make a huge difference to the final dish.
Maurizio has also added grated ‘Bottarga’ to this dish – it is a dried, cured fish roe with a strong, salty flavour. You only need a little bit to add extra depth to this dish.
The pasta, olive oil, tinned tomatoes and bottarga are available to buy at Salvi’s deli in the Corn Exchange. There is also a fantastic range of Valentine’s gifts available, from chocolates and Prosecco to gift sets, hampers and cookery classes.
Impress your loved one this Valentine’s Day with this gorgeous dish!
