  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 100ml white wine
  • squeeze lemon juice
  • small handful flatleaf parsley, roughly chopped

Method

  1. Cook the pasta in a large pan of boiling, salted water according to pack instructions. Meanwhile, heat a small knob of the butter in a frying pan. When it starts to sizzle, add the prawns and fry for 1 min until they start to change colour. Add the garlic and sizzle for 1 min more, splash in the wine, then bring to the boil. Swirl in the rest of the butter, season with salt and pepper and a squeeze of lemon juice, then stir in the chopped parsley.

  2. When the pasta is just cooked, drain and toss through the prawns. Divide the pasta between 2 bowls, pour over any excess sauce and serve straightaway.

Instead of parsley toss in a good handful of rocket leaves and must add 1 or 2 seeded chopped red chillies and make sure the butter is unsalted,

We loved this recipe, it's so simple yet really tasty. I used frozen raw tiger prawns, and a pinch of dried chilli flakes instead of the parsley. My husband loved it so much he's asked me to cook it again as soon as possible!
