Bangus Spaghetti alla Puttanesca

This is a simple oil-based pasta, one of my favorite way of cooking pasta :-) However, as you can see, it is not that healthy due to it’s high carbohydrates and calorie contents but still considered healthy because this dish is high in protein and low in cholesterol and sodium. It's caloric content mostly came from the oil and the pasta.

Anyway, I wanted something new for the week so I made one last night.  I’ll just burn off the calories in my work out later.  I made Bangus Spaghettie alla puttanesca.

Spaghetti alla puttanesca , literally means "whore's style spaghetti" in Italian, or “lady of the night”.  It is actually a pasta dish that is hot, spicy, strong, tangy, and somewhat salty and the blend of these flavors bring pleasure to the palate :-)

Here goes my recipe.

Ingredients:

Spaghetti - 150 g.

Bangus - 2 slices (around 200 g.)

Grapeseed Oil - 4 tbsp

Garlic, chopped - 10 cloves

Salt & Ground pepper to taste

Sharon’s Herb Blend

Chinese Chili sauce - 1 tbsp or hot chili as desired

Parmesan can be added depending on the preference.  For my pasta, I didn't add, first of all, I'm still cutting off my dairy intake and that includes cheeses, and second of all, there is no available parmesan in the house :D

Cooking Procedure:

1) Cook the spaghetti as directed in the package.  Set aside.

2) Microwave the fish for 2 minutes.  Let it cool then shred afterwards, make sure to remove all the tiny fish bones.

3) Saute' garlic in grapeseed oil until it is aromatic, don't let it get toasted. Add the shredded fish and mix.

4) Toss in the spaghetti, and add the remaining ingredients.

This makes 2 servings for those "small eaters" or one serving for those who have a voracious appetite :D
