recipe: Spaghetti & sea lettuce

Spaghetti with fried garlic and sea lettuce


  • 500 gr (1/2 lb) spaghetti (or any other sort of pasta)
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 10 gr (0,3 oz plus) dried sea lettuce
  • olive oil, salt
    Serves: 4

Boil the spaghetti in salted water, to your taste. If you like pasta "al dente", it should be boiling during 8 minutes, no more. Preheat high your oven during 10 minutes. Put the dried sea lettuce to be roasted during half minute, only the time to become crispy (be careful it burns out very easily). In a pan put 6 tablespoons olive oil. When it is hot you add the very thin chopped garlic, stirring until it glazes. Slow down the heat and add the chopped sea lettuce (very small mashed). Pour on the spaghetti. Mix the whole with two forks.

If you prefer you can cut the garlic in very thin slides, you fry it until it glazes. Take out the garlic of the pan and follow the recipe as above.
You can use other kind of oil.
