This seafood dish is perfect for family BBQs or dinner parties to recreate that Mediterranean summer feeling. Special thanks to Huggies mum Vale for this fabulous recipe.



  • 16 mussels
  • 4 king prawns
  • 200g calamari
  • 160g baby octopus
  • 200g salmon or barramundi or snapper
  • Chilli pepper, pepper, salt, Italian parsley, 1/4 garlic
  • 1 can of whole peeled tomatoes


  1. Cut the fish in little cubes.
  2. Put some olive oil in a frypan and add garlic in little pieces.
  3. When the garlic is turning gold in colour, add first the baby octopus, then calamari, mussels and king prawns and cover with a lid. Wait a couple of minutes and stir a little bit, adding pepper, chilli pepper and a little bit of salt.
  4. Add the fish cubes and stir with the other seafood. Add the peeled tomatoes, crushing them with a fork. Cover for 3-4 minutes with the lid.
  5. In the meantime, cook the spaghetti and drain it 2 minutes prior the recommended cooking time.
  6. Split the seafood into two parts. Add half to the spaghetti, and stir in the frypan for 2-3 minutes with some fresh olive oil. Add pepper and parsley as desired.
  7. Serve and garnish with the other half of the seafood on top.
