Seafood with Spaghetti

This is one of our favourite stir fries. We serve it over spaghetti for a fast and easy dinner. Last week, Becka took some of the leftovers and put them on top of a cheese pizza about 10 minutes before it was done baking. It was among the best pizzas I have ever eaten!

1 lb seafood (shrimp, scallops or combination)
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 tbsp oil
1 tbsp butter

In a large skillet or wok, stir fry garlic and seafood in oil and butter until done, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and keep warm.

In the same skillet, stir fry in 1 tbsp oil

5 cups thinly sliced vegetables
(We used peppers, mushrooms, carrots last time, but use others as available)
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp minced fresh parsley or 1 tsp dried
1 tbsp minced fresh basil or 1 tsp dried
salt and pepper to taste

Add seafood to vegetable mixture and serve over prepared spaghetti or rice.
Makes 4 generous servings.
