Ingredients

  • 400g spaghetti
  • 2 long red chillies
  • 100ml extra-virgin olive oil , plus extra
  • 200g bag frozen, shelled cooked prawn , defrosted
  • 2x50g bags wild rocket

Method

  • STEP 1

    Cook the spaghetti in boiling salted water according to pack instructions.

  • STEP 2

    While the spaghetti is cooking, split the chillies down the centre lengthways. Using a teaspoon and starting at the top, scoop the seeds from the flesh - add these if you like your food hot. Using a sharp knife, cut the chillies in thin strips, bundle them together and cut across to make squares.

  • STEP 3

    Drain the spaghetti, toss with a drizzling of olive oil and set aside. Heat the oil in a deep frying pan or sauté pan over a high heat and add the prawns. Stir in the chillies, season, then add the spaghetti. Remove from the heat, fold through the rocket and stir.

RECIPE TIPS
GIVE IT A TWIST

This can also be made with canned crabmeat. Simply heat the chillies in the oil for a minute, then flake the crabmeat through the spaghetti as you mix it in with the chilli oil.
