    Hey Fifi

    Sadly I think this recipe is yum but really quite high in cals as you need quite a bit of oil....anyway

    Seafood delight:

    Mixed bag frozen seafood
    Cherry tomatoes

    Boil pasta (preferably tagliatelle) according to instructions
    heat large glugs of olive oil and gentle simmer garlic for 1 min, add halved cherry toms to mix and continue to simmer for approx 5 mins, add seafood and after 1 min pour over pasta.

    Serve with chopped parsley, salt, pepper and lemon yumma!
