Let’s Make Some Fusion Cuisine Seafood Pasta!

1. In a pan, add the butter and the Thai red curry paste and then put over the stove over medium high heat. Stir together so the spice paste gets awakened by the heated butter.


2. Once the butter has turned reddish from the curry paste, add the leeks and the celery. Sauté until the greens are both wilted and fragrant.


3. Add the ¼ cup of dry white wine and the mussels.


4. Cover for 5-7 minutes until the mussels have opened.


5. Add the cooked spaghetti and toss together until the fluid in the pan has been absorbed by the pasta (about 1-2 minutes). Turn off the heat and squeeze some lemon juice over the dish.


6. Serve in individual plates with a slice of lemon and a sprinkling of parsley or celery leaves.

Makes 4 servings.
