Since I didn't go grocery shopping I had limited ingredients to really whip up anything!!! I remembered I had prawns in the freezer and spaghetti stored in the pantry so I whipped up this delicious spicy prawn spaghetti!! It only takes about half an hour to whip up ...its quick, easy and very tasty!
This will serve about 4 people
Spicy Prawn Spaghetti
You will need:
- 2 tbs olive oil
- 1 pack of thick spaghetti
- 20 prawns (divide 5 for each person)
- 1 onion diced
- 2 cloves of garlic
- 1 - 2 tbs of sambal oelek relish
- 1 - 2 tbs of tomato paste
- herbs (mint, parsley, basil etc)
Firstly in a pot, cook pasta according to directions or until al dente and drain
In a pan, add olive oil, garlic and onion and saute. Add prawns. Cook the prawns until it changes colour. This will take about 1 minute each side. Remove the prawns. You do not want to over cook them.
In the same pan, add the spaghetti, sambal oelek relish, tomato paste and pepper. Mix through until the sauces coat the spaghetti. And add the prawns to heat through again.
Divide spaghetti and 5 prawns on each plate. Garnish with herbs and serve immediately
