Dinner- Seafood Aglio Olio @ Home

Date: 15 April 2011
Place: Subang Jaya
Dish: Seafood Aglio Olio (Home-Cooked)

I was craving for pasta, Italian-styled today, and I got just that and more, since it was home-cooked, with love :-) The dish is none other than the classic Seafood Aglio Olio!

Aglio Olio is a classic pasta dish that consists of two main ingredients i.e. garlic and olive oil, as you can see below. Surprisingly,  this is a rather easy  and quick dish to prepare, and really worth a try.

Heating up garlic in olive oil..

Clams and fresh prawns are then fried in the oil..
