In South Africa, we love everything protein. We love our beef, pork, mutton, venison, you name it but we are also well known for seafood. If you live along the coast, you find some of the best seafood out there. We have some unique fish along the coastline and also the usual classics. If you love seafood, you’ll love the special pasta sauce we have for you right here. Our Creamy Seafood Pasta Sauce is light, creamy and goes very well with pasta and even some rice.

White wine goes very well with most styles of seafood dishes and this one is no different. Your mussels, shrimp and calamari will bathe in the goodness of your white wine and cream sauce. Make sure to taste your sauce before adding more salt as fish spice is often salty already. Lemons add some zest to the fish and elevate the flavour. You can also serve with fresh lemon or lime on the side for a squeeze before you tuck in. Enjoy your Creamy Seafood Pasta Sauce with rice or with your favourite pasta.
