A Celebration of the Sea
Where are all of my seafood lovers at? Dairy Free Seafood Pasta with Roasted Garlic Butter gives you a taste of the sweet and succulent offerings of the ocean. With a twirl of your fork, this over-the-top dish packs seafood in every bite.
The heart of this dish is all about the bounty of beautiful fresh seafood. For this recipe I am using a trio of favorites, shrimp, scallops, and lobster. Nothing says sumptuous like lobster.
When seafood is the star of your dish, just like with any other protein, you always want to start with the freshest possible. Lobster Anywhere was my one stop source for all of the seafood in this pasta.
You all know how much I love the ease and convenience of having food delivered. Not only does Lobster Anywhere deliver anywhere in the United States, but their seafood is also shipped next day ensuring the freshest possible dock to table experience. The freshness is unmatched in both flavor and texture.
Aside from the trio of crustaceans, this elegant pasta dish stands out with the savory drizzle of roasted garlic butter that gets cascaded over the top to finish it off. The combination of mellow roasted garlic and sweet and tangy crushed tomatoes hug each bite of seafood and curl of linguine.
While this recipe is completely Dairy Free and Gluten Free, you can easily adapt it with your favorite pasta and full dairy butter. It’s all about the celebration of beautiful, fresh ingredients.
