Prawn, Lemon & Chilli Pasta by Clementine Day 

 

Serves 4 

 

Prep time: 10 min

Cook time: 15 min

 

Ingredients

 

500g fresh, uncooked prawns (tail on is great!)

350g spaghetti

4 cloves of garlic, finely chopped

1-2 red chillis, finely chopped

250g cherry tomatoes

50g butter

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 tablespoons of chopped fresh parlsey

Juice of 2 lemons

Parmesan, to serve



Method:

 

  1. Heat olive oil and butter in a large frying pan and add tomatoes, whole.
  2. Get a pot of salted water on to boil.
  3. Cook down for 5-8 minutes over medium/high heat until the skins begin to split on the tomatoes. Then carefully, using the back of a wooden spoon or spatula, squish them until the juices and seeds pop out.
  4. Add chilli and garlic and continue to cook.
  5. Add spaghetti to the boiling water and cook per packet instructions until el dente. 
  6. Add prawns to the tomatoes, tossing every now and then to cook them evenly on each side.
  7. Add ½ a cup of pasta water, lemon juice and parsley and cook down until reduced by half.
  8. Strain off spaghetti and add to sauce. Toss around well to coat spaghetti with sauce.
  9. Top with a little grated parmesan.

The perfect mid week dinner where you can set and forget! The combination of salty miso and aromatic harissa is so well-balanced and infuses a lot of flavour with very little effort. If you have time to marinate overnight that would be ideal, but 1 hour is delicious too.
