I was craving for prawns on Friday – so the bf and I made this dish that took us nothing more than 30 minutes :) [grocery shopping excluded].
Special Prawn Pasta Recipe (from BBCGoodFood)
200 g linguine or spaghetti (I used wholewheat spaghetti)
25g butter (I used unsalted)
200g raw peeled prawns
1 garlic clove (I used pre-minced garlic, approximately 3/4 teaspoon)
100ml white whine
squeeze lemon juice
small handful flatleaf parsley, roughly chopped (I used bottled dried parsley)
- Cook pasta like you would normally do. Meanwhile heat a small knob of butter in a frying pan. When butter starts to sizzle, add prawns and fry for a few minutes until they start to change colour. Add in garlic and sizzle for 1 minute more. Splash in white wine and bring to boil. Swirl in rest of the butter and season with salt, pepper, lemon juice and parsley.
- Drain cooked pasta, return to pot and pour in prawn sauce from the frying pan. Toss till evenly coated and serve immediately.
This is a quick yet delicious pasta dish that really proves good food do not require a lot of time to prepare :) So put away that frozen pizza, my friend, because fresh cooked food have so much more nutrients that our bodies crave.
