Tonight, I feasted on my simple seafood pasta again. In my student days, it was one of my favourite dishes to cook up for my friends, as the ingredients don't cost much and it seems to cater to everyone's taste; luckily I still remembered how to prepare it:

250g tagliatelle (or any other kind of pasta)
2 tbsp olive oil
handful of chopped mushrooms
250g smoked salmon, shredded
200g shrimp
1 fish stock cube
freshly chopped parsley
1 lemon
150ml single cream
freshly ground black pepper

1) cook pasta
2) heat oil, stir-fry mushrooms, then add salmon and shrimp
3) dissolve fish stock cube in 150ml boiling water from the kettle
4) add to seafood & mushrooms mixture, add cream, lemon juice, pepper and parsley
5) stir in tagliatelle
6) serve, if need be with a bit of freshly grated parmesan on top, though it's good enough to eat without it

I don't suppose LJ will be very busy in the coming days, as everyone will be focusing on their Christmas celebrations, reconnecting with friends and family, and thinking it rude to sneak away and come online. So before that happens, let me just take this opportunity to thank everyone who has sent me a Christmas card, and everyone who's been here for me this past year; everyone I've interacted with through LJ, and everyone I've had the good fortune to meet and spend time with in real life, and wish you all the very best of Christmasses ever.
