Seafood paleo pesto ‘pasta’

27 Jun


This is a super easy, super healthy, delicious meal that everyone will love. I must advise, if you don’t have a food processor by now, get one! They make everything easier, quicker, and taste better. Okay, maybe not taste better but easy and quick!


  • 2 cups of fresh basil
  • 1/4 cup pine nuts
  • 2 tbls. Olive oil
  • 2-3 garlic cloves
  • Bag o’ seafood from Trader Joes (in the frozen section. Has calamari rings,shrimp, and scallops)
  • 3 large zucchini’s
  • Salt/pepper
To make the pesto sauce just add the basil, garlic, olive oil, and pine nuts into the food processor. Blend until creamy smooth. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Cook the seafood mixture in a little olive oil in frying pan. Add pesto sauce and complete cooking.
In the meantime cut your zucchini into thin slices or use a mandolin. (Target has them for like $5). Then cut into slices into smaller slices that resemble fettuccine. Boil these until tender, think al dente. Add to pesto seafood mixture and stir until pesto has coated everything.
Serve with cherry tomatoes and enjoy!
