I'd like to thank you for this recipe. I doubled it up to do lunch for 4 and after reading other comments didn't use much lemon juice. I also grated a courgette in the magimix which I added with the cooked prawns just warming them through and it was delicious and went down very well.

Really quick to make and absolutely delicious - one of new favourite midweek meals! I also add spinach or pak choi to the pasta for extra goodness (add to pasta cooking in water 3 - 4 mins before it's ready, like broccoli in this one here: http://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/1506634/lemony-prawn-pasta)

I followed this recipe to the measurement and the second, and I was so disappointed. 100ml is FAR too much white wine. It should be called white wine pasta with prawns. Even with the smallest amount of lemon juice it would have been too over powering and acidic.

I was really disappointed with the result :( I only put abit of lemon in but even then it was way too lemony!! Next time Im going to add less lemon & some light philidelphia cheese instead of the cream fraiche. Recommendation: Light philidelphia, prawns or salmon, dill, asparagas, chilli seeds & linguine :)
