Cooking Time

25 minutes

Serves

5-6

Ingredients

  • 500 g pkt SPAR Italian style shell noodles
  • SPAR sunflower oil
  • 1  box       frozen SPAR Mixed Seafood  (400 g net mass)
  • 600g pkt   SPAR Freshline Pineapple Stir-Fry
  • 1 large      red chilli, finely slivered (excluding the pips)
  •  salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 tub         SPAR Salmon Flavoured low fat cream cheese (175 g)
  • 50 ml        SPAR Sweet Chilli sauce

Method

  1. Boil the noodles in rapidly boiling lightly salted water.
  2. Meanwhile, heat a little sunflower oil in two frying pans. In one, stir-fry the Pineapple Stir-Fry mix and chilli on high heat, until just losing its crispness. At the same time, in the other pan, cook the thawed or frozen mixed seafood for 3 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and add into the cooked vegetable mix, to heat through. Season well with salt and pepper.
  3. Drain the cooked noodles in a colander.
  4. Combine the cream cheese and chilli sauce in the empty pot from the noodles, and stir to thin it down somewhat. Add in the hot drained noodles, tossing until they are coated in sauce.
  5. Serve immediately in bowls with the seafood vegetable mix on top.

Hints & Tips

If you thaw the seafood mix before cooking, pour off any surplus liquid and pat the seafood dry with paper towels.
A can of SPAR Wild Caught Pink Salmon may be drained and added in as chunks, to extend the meal further.
