Spaghetti with Crab & Shrimp

I saw a variation of this spaghetti with crab recipe on TV this week and had to try it. It was so simple and if you use a low carb pasta (not wheat pasta) such as *Dreamfields it’s healthy too. If you don’t like shellfish, chicken will work. The original recipe used only lump crab, but that’s just too expensive so I changed it up a bit.

I had my market steam 3 crab clusters in Old Bay and garlic while I shopped. To that I added 1/2 lb shrimp and a few sea scallops. The outcome was awesome and cheaper than using lump crab. If you like a little bite add some red pepper flakes when you add the tomatoes.

Spaghetti with Crab Ingredients
  • 3 crab clusters, meat removed and set aside
  • 1/2 lb raw shrimp
  • 1/4 sea scallops
  • 1 pkg Dreamfields pasta
  • 1 pint grape tomatoes cut in half lengthwise
  • 3 Tbsp sun dried tomatoes, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely minced or pressed
  • 1/2 – 1 cup chicken stock
  • 3 Tbsp fresh parsley
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp butter, I use Smart Balance
  • Panko bread crumbs
  • Garlic pepper if you have some
  • Fresh lemon or lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Spaghetti with Crab Directions
  1. Bring a large pot of water to boil and cook pasta, clean shrimp and scallops.
  2. Heat oil and butter in a large non stick pan.
  3. Lightly spray  shrimp and scallops with spray oil, season with garlic pepper, coat with bread crumbs and saute, remove to plate.
  4. Add tomatoes, sun dried tomatoes and garlic to pan, saute about 2-3 minutes add chicken broth, warm and turn off heat.
  5. Add cooked pasta, crab, shrimp, scallops and parsley  to tomatoes, toss gently to combine.
  6. Add lemon juice, salt and pepper to taste. Top with Parmesan cheese if you like and enjoy without guilt.

*Dreamfields pasta has 5 grams of digestible carbs per serving. You cannot tell the difference between Dreamfeilds and regular pasta.
