Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    Cook the pasta. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a pan and gently fry the garlic for 2 mins. Tip in the wine and bubble over a high heat for 1 min, then lower the heat and stir in the crème fraîche and lemon juice. Season to taste with salt and plenty of black pepper. Simmer for 1 min to reduce a little, then add the prawns and simmer in the sauce until just pink.

  • STEP 2

    Drain the pasta and tip into the sauce with half the chives. Use tongs to mix everything together. Divide between 2 shallow bowls and sprinkle with the remaining chives.

RECIPE TIPS
SPECIAL FISH MORNAY
Put 2 thick fillets sustainably caught haddock into a small baking dish. Make the sauce as before, using just a splash of wine, with 4 tbsp crème fraîche. Don’t worry about cooking the prawns through. Scatter with the chives and a good handful grated cheddar, then grill for 15-20 mins until bubbling and fish is cooked through. Serve with crusty bread.
