Cheap Seafood Fettucini

March 29th, 2005 · No Comments

I’ve realized I’ve got lots of pictures of food that I haven’t written up yet. This is probably due to the way I cook. Sometimes I’ll use a recipe as an aid, but normaly, I’m just throwing things into a pan that were in my frig or pantry. After I’m done, I can’t remember what I did. This is a quick seafood fettucini that’s simple enough that I remember it.


1 package of imitation crab (the already-cooked stuff)
1 c. or so of mushrooms
1/2 stick of butter
1 c. half and half
2-3 T Cream Cheese
1/2 c. shredded parmesan
fennel fronds

Imitation crab is basically painted pollock. If I could afford this much real crab I would have used it. Also I would have used goat cheese if I had some at the time, but the cream cheese and parmesan were on hand, and gave me the creaminess I was looking for. Same thing with the half and half – normally it would be heavy cream but it works okay.

Boil the water for the pasta, melt the butter, saute the shrooms, throw in the broken up, painted pollock. Add the half and half, the cream cheese and mix up until bubbly. Throw in the cheese, melt a little and then throw in the cooked fettucini. Add the chopped fennel fronds last.
