Spicy Lime Seafood Pasta

(adapted from an online recipe - 20 Minute Supper Club)

*
*

1/4 cup olive oil (plus extra for serving)
*
2 cloves minced garlic
*
2 chilies, finely chopped
*
2 limes, zested and juiced
*
1 500-g box spaghetti (I used fresh Fettuccini)
*
1 lb Halibut skin off, cut into chunks
*
1/2 lb scallops
*
12 large peeled, de-veined shrimp

*
OR whatever seafood you wish to use
*
*

Warm the oil in a large saute pan over med heat. Add minced garlic, chilies and lime zest; and cook 2 min until warm and fragrant. Remove pan from heat and allow flavors to mingle. The scent is marvelous!!
*
*
Cook the noodles in boiling, salted water until just undercooked. (Remove from heat but keep noodles in water.)
*
While the noodles are cooking, cook the halibut. Add scallops next; lastly add shrimp. (Perhaps 5-10 min total depending on size of pan and amount of seafood.)
*
Drain noodles and toss with lime juice and a little extra oil. Toss to coat well. Top with seafood and fresh ground pepper. Serve with a little fresh Parmesan, if desired!
A meal fit for a king!
