    Aunty Dotty's Note:

    This sounds so good! Posting here to keep safe until I have some good seafood on hand. From Terry Durack, who also suggests turning it Asian by subbing hokkien or udon noodles for the spag, and instead of the tomato sauce a quick stir fry of garlic, chili and ginger, with a dash each of fish sauce, white wine and sweet chili. Mix with the seafood, put in the bag and bake 15 mins. So there's 2 recipes : )

    1. 1
      Heat oven to 200°C.
    2. 2
      To make the bags, take two 50cm square sheets of foil, lay a same size square of baking paper over each one and fold in half. Scrunch up the sides to form an open pouch, brush the insides with a little oil.
    3. 3
      Heat the rest of the oil in a pan and fry the garlic for 1 minute on medium.
    4. 4
      Add tomatoes, wine oregano, chili, sugar, anchovies, capers and olives and simmer gently for 15 minutes.
    5. 5
      Cook the pasta in plenty of salted water until only just al dente.
    6. 6
      Drain, toss with the sauce, and divide between the 2 bags. Add the prawns and clams and fold and scrunch the tops to make a tight seal.
    7. 7
      Put them on a tray and bake for 15 minutes.
    8. 8
      To serve, tip the bag contents onto a plate and scatter with the parsley and drizzle with a little extra virgin olive oil.

      A delicious combination of flavours, the prawns and clams were cooked perfectly, and there was THE most delcious smell when you opened the little baggie.
