We spent this past weekend skiing at Alyeska. Since we were already in Girdwood, we had to go to the Double Musky for dinner. Once there, we spent a while debating over what to order. I finally ordered the garlic seafood pasta.
Immediately, I knew I had made a mistake. I wanted to call the waitress back, but it was too late.
Now, I hadn't made a mistake because the Double Musky's seafood pasta was bad, you see. I had made a mistake because MY seafood pasta is better!
1/2 c bread flour
1/2 c seminola flour
1 T oil
1/2 fillet of fish (halibut or salmon, but anything can work!), cut into chunks
2 T olive oil
2 cloves garlic, sliced
Combine flours, egg, oil, and just enough water to allow the dough to reach the correct consistency. Knead for 3-5 minutes, cover with plastic wrap and rest for 20 minutes.
Following the directions on your pasta roller, roll out the dough and cut into fettuccine noodles. Cook noodles for 3-4 minutes in salted water.
Sautee the fish and garlic slices in the olive oil. For a variation, blacken the fish with your preferred rub first. Pour fish and garlic oil over the pasta.
