Super quick, and incredibly simple to make, but guaranteed to impress your dinner guest! It took me only 20 minutes to make this gorgeous plate of pasta! I regretted not making larger portion of this dish as both the husband and I could not get enough of it! I made another 2 servings using teddy bear shaped pasta for the girls, and they finished their meal at record speed!
This time round, I used The Alaska Guys‘ Wild Alaskan Golden King Crab. Since they are already cooked in Sea Brine (a salt water solution that acts like a natural preservative) it means I just have to get them out of their shell with my pair of trusty kitchen shears and heat them up! The crab legs made the would-have-been-boring pasta popped with it’s succulent, sweet, salty, and most definitely fresh taste of the Alaskan sea!
TAG‘s Wild Alaskan Seafood are caught from the open sea of Alaska, then almost immediately the live crabs are cleaned, cooked, and packed for shipping to ensure that you get the freshest possible seafood from the Alaskan sea to your dining table. If you have not tasted Alaskan Crab, you are missing out on something really good. Use discount code “Delishar5” if you are planning to try out some of The Alaskan Guy‘s wild Alaskan Seafood!
