[Latest Recipe] Mentaiko Pasta
I’m always on the look out for easy pasta dishes like my pesto pasta and this is by far the easiest gourmet pasta I have made to date. And I mean really easy – there is no need to cook the sauce which can be prepared in minutes. Mentaiko is marinated roe of pollock and using it for pasta sauce is my favourite way to enjoy this ingredient. This Italian-Japanese pasta is usually quite expensive on the menu, but easily less than half the price if you do it at home. The advantage of making it at home is that you can tweak the recipe to your liking, such as adjusting the creaminess and saltiness of the pasta. I personally do not like creamy pasta, so I am happy that I can make my home version without cream.
