I have frozen seafood, would you defrost it or cook from frozen? Thanks
HollyTuesday 11th October 2022
Hey Sara, it’s probably best to refer to the instructions on the back of the packet to see if it suggests defrosting or cooking from frozen, hope that helps!

May do seafood crespella with pasta instead of wraps, the sauce in that is lovely & works well as base for seafood lasagne.
HollyFriday 1st April 2022
Hey Hazel, thanks so much for your message. Your idea to adapt the sauce from our Seafood Crespella and add it to pasta sounds great!
