A fresh, summery spaghetti dish packed full of seafood and spice
- 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.
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.
