Seafood Spaghetti with Kombu

By: Lisa Holmen

This seafood pasta is complemented beautifully by the addition of kombu, which provides salty notes to the dish. Although ground kombu can be used, you can also add a pinch of finely chopped kombu to the frying pan when adding the garlic. You can find kombu at your local Asian grocer.
