Fresh Seafood and Mesclun Pasta


Fresh seafood….I Love it! I cooked this as our lunch together with my boss, I replicated the recipe when we had a guest chef from Hilton Hotel Auckland, The Chef was really good in pasta and pizza and demonstrated some of his expertise…I learned some techniques from him. It’s really nice to be exposed and work with some experienced Chefs……Did you know that the seafood I used such as mussels are low in total and saturated fat but are one of the richest shellfish sources of a type of heart-healthy unsaturated fatty acid known collectively as the omega-3 fatty acids. Some study reports that omega-3 fatty acids, particularly those from fish and shellfish, offer cardioprotective benefits. They decrease the risk of developing abnormal heartbeats as well as triglyceride levels or levels of fat in the bloodstream. Both of these benefits contribute to a reduced risk of heart attack or sudden death from heart disease.
