RECIPE: TKG's Seafood Pasta with Salted Egg Tomato Sauce

We had this for our media noche. It's very easy to prepare and a great alternative to the usual bolognese and carbonara pasta sauce.


Ingredients:

Shrimps, 6-8 pcs depending on size
Scallops, 200 grams
Clara Ole's Filipino Style Pasta Sauce
3 Salted eggs
1 Clove garlic, minced
1 Onion, minced
Fresh basil leaves
Ground black pepper
Salt if needed only
Oil
Penne, 300 grams (spaghetti or other pasta may also be used)

*** serves 3 pax


Preparation:

Pour a bit of oil in a heated pan and add garlic and onions, stir for about 3 minutes. Mashed the salted egg in the garlic and onions and season with pepper. Add about 3/4 of Clara Ole's Filipino Style Pasta Sauce and add the scallops while it is simmering. Cover pan until the scallops are almost done then add the shrimps and some shredded basil leaves. Toss in cooked penne (al dente) and mix it well with the sauce. Remove from pan and transfer in a serving dish. Garnish with basil leaves and serve. Bon appetit!


*** I used Filipino Style Pasta Sauce because its a bit sweet, and because I want my 2014 to be sweet. :)

  1. We love Clara Ole too but have never tried putting salted eggs in our pasta. This is something unique and probably adventurous.

    1. Not really unique, inspiration came from prawns with salted egg sauce that we've eaten in a Chinese Resto :) -TheKitchenGoddess

Ilustrado Restaurant Anniversary Degustation

Jose Rizal and the Spanish era are synonymous with the word Ilustrado but for me, what comes to mind is this restaurant in Intramuros, Manila. Coincidentally though, Intramuros was once called the Walled City and is rich in history and glamor of the bygone days when Spain ruled the country. Visiting Intramuros is like a history lesson itself and dining at Ilustrado is the cherry on top.

As Ilustrado Restaurant celebrates its 29th anniversary this October, it brings back the specially curated 8-course Ilustrado Degustation by Chef Bernice Pimentel.

"This year, 2019 marks the third year that we have been doing an anniversary degustation and this year, I am not only bringing forth our culinary heritage to the present but also incorporating much more local ingredients," says Chef Bernice.

Fat Fook Manila

Fat Fook Manila, the restaurant that's been making foodies excited with its Taiwanese noms opened its latest branch at The Globe Tower in BGC. The restaurant which has a seating capacity of about 40, also has a dedicated take-out counter should you have cravings for yummy Taiwanese snacks.

There's a lot of interesting noms from the menu but here are my favorites:

Taiwanese Sausage on sticks. I've been hearing about this amazing sausages from my friends who has been to Taiwan and its on the must-try list. And thanks to Fat Fook Manila, I don't have to fly to Taiwan to enjoy these sausages. It tastes sweet but the meat is firm and not as oily as our local sausage (longganisa). The garlic inserted on the sausages looks weird but it adds some flavor to it. I'm guessing that this sausages are best paired with a bottle of beer. ;)
