Method

  1. Boil the pasta following pack instructions. Meanwhile, very gently cook the garlic in the butter in a medium pan until softened. Add the prawns and cook until they just turn from grey to pink. It is important not to overcook them or they will be tough. Remove from the heat and stir in the zest and seasoning.

  2. Drain the pasta and toss into the pan with the prawn mixture and parsley until well mixed. Divide between two bowls and serve with the lemon wedges.

Very easy and completely delicious. What a shame it's pretty fattening, as it is heavenly to eat.

This was a great!! Made this as a very last minute anniversary meal for my wife using what I had in, and was wonderful, the garlic wasn't overpowering and the freshness of the lemon comes through at the end of every mouthful.....lovely!

Add a finely chopped red chilli with the garlic for extra flavour.
