Seafood Tom Yum Pasta – 冬陰海鮮意粉

Love pasta but at the same time a fan of Southeast Asian tastes? Then today’s recipe will be tantalizing to your tastebuds! We stir-fried lemongrass, shallots, garlic, chilli padi and kaffir lime leaves before adding the tom yum pasta to further enhance the flavor of the dish. By creating a tangy, yet spicy tom yum sauce in a few short moments, this can be good if you want a quick and tasty meal for the family.

We used San Remo Fettuccine (but choose your favourite pasta to your preference)  to evenly coat with the tom yum sauce, and man does this go well for any meal!
