Spaghetti with shrimp and mushrooms

Updated on May 8, 2014

My Recipe of Spaghetti with Shrimp and Mushrooms

This is my first recipe lens but I hope I do everything right.

I decided to share a simple recipe that can be done by everyone (I have to confess that the kitchen isn't my best friend).

Don't forget to leave a comment at the end of the page.

All photos were taken from me.

I love this recipe because it is really easy and quick to cook. And here at home, everyone loves it!

If you want to, you can add some more seafood like I did on that pictures. That will make the spaghetti even more yummy!

Just a Little Question

The Spaghetti I used

For this recipe I use this special spaghetti, that is perfect for seafood dishes.

You can find it on almost every supermarket. And it is called Spaghetti with Cuttlefish Ink.

The flavor isn't that different from the traditional spaghetti but the final look of the dish is complety different, specially if you mix a lot of different types of seafood, which will make the dish more colourful.

Some Good Woks

A smaller wok, perfect to cook for just two people.

Choosing a Good Wok

You may be enticed to buy the "best deal" when it comes to pricing when it comes to buying a wok, but soon you will experience the breaking of all Teflon (found in cheaper woks), or see the deformation, broken wrists, and worse, bad food! The shape and the material of which your wok is made, will affect its performance and life.

When buying a wok, it is important to invest in cast iron or steel, not necessarily the most expensive that your pocket can afford.

Assuming you are buying a wok quality steel or iron, the handles are a personal preference. A simple handle can be enough if you have the strength and practice to throw the food with one or two hands. But remember that it is you who decide what is most comfortable for you.

      Mmmm shrimp! LOL I wondered at the black spaghetti till I saw it was a squid ink one. I'm a little leery about squid ink flavor and haven't ever tried it, but after your recipe I'll give it a whirl!

      Nice recipe, love seafoods. I was wondering why the spaghetti was so dark. I didn't know you could buy it that color, thanks, will be looking for it next time I'm in the supermarket.

      I'll admit, that spaghetti color threw me for a minute. The recipe sounds really good! I do make something similar, but with tomatoes (in fact it's on my menu tonight), and I've been thinking about getting a wok instead of using a skillet. Thanks for the suggestion! (Nice job on your first recipe lens, by the way!)
