spaghetti with crayfish

I was so in the mood for seafood when I drove home from work Friday night. So I stopped at my favorite fish dealer in town not knowing what to buy. I let the guy in shop explain every single fish to me (I might not be the easiest customer) and then left with a bag of crayfish.

So we had spaghetti with crayfish for lunch yesterday. A very quick and simple pasta dish. It’s ready in no time. With a good amount of crème fraîche it is not the lightest meal ever but so creamy and delicious. With a good glass of white wine, it is a perfect weekend lunch. The rich and creamy sauce also goes well with shrimps. You should try it.

Happy weekend!


Serves two:

  • Spaghetti for two
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • Approx. 200g crayfish meat
  • 150 g crème fraîche
  • Small handful of fresh marjoram
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • A pinch of chili flakes
  • 1-2 generous tablespoons of white whine
  • A dash of fresh lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper

  • Cook spaghetti in slightly salted water until al dente. In a small pan, sweat onion and garlic over medium heat in olive oil until translucent. Add the rest of the ingredients apart from the crayfish and stir well. Bring to a short boil and then turn of the heat. Add crayfish and mix well. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Strain pasta and top with crayfish sauce. Serve with fresh marjoram.
