About This Recipe

Seafood pasta is an absolute favourite of mine, and this gluten free seafood tagliatelle is the best! It is full of fresh and summery flavours. The zesty lemon and fresh basil just complement the seafood so well and lightens up the dish. This gluten free seafood pasta is relatively simple, so using good quality ingredients will really elevate it. I like to use fresh homemade pasta and good quality fresh seafood as it really elevates this simple dish.

Enjoying this dish outside, on a hot summer’s day with a cold glass of white wine will really make you feel like you have been transported to Italy! This dish is re3ved best with a squeeze of lemon and some fresh basil, alongside a citrusy pinot grigio or a prosecco. This pasta dish is simple ingredients combined to make something delicious, and that is the essence of Italian cooking.


Question: Should I put parmesan on my seafood pasta?

  • It is said that you should not really put cheese on seafood pastas as the cheese will overpower the light seafood flavour. However, I do still put it on the table in case someone really wants it.

Question: How do I know when my prawns are cooked?

  • The rule of thumb that I follow is if it shaped like the letter L it is undercooked, if it is shaped like the letter C it is cooked, and if it is shaped like the letter O it is overcooked.
