I am a self confessed fan of Italian cuisine. Pastas are so quick n easy to make and you can experiment with almost anything that you like. So this time I tried with prawns. This is a Donna Hay inspired recipe... so loads of credit to her.
All that you need
1. Butter - 1 tblspoon
2. Olive Oil - 1 tblspoon
3. Prawns - 250 g - de-veined and cut in halves lengthwise
4. Garlic crushed - 4-5 cloves
5. Lemon Juice - 2 tspn
6. Thyme - 1 tspn
7. Lemon grass - 1 tspn
8. Salt & pepper for seasoning
Lets get started
Marinate the prawns with lemon juice & salt
Melt butter in a wok and add olive oil
Add crushed garlic and fry for 2 mins.
Add the prawns and fry in medium heat
Boil the spaghetti with little salt.
Add thyme, lemon grass and seasoning to prawn. [I use dried herbs, if you get fresh herbs please use that, and let me know where you collected that in Bangalore]
Once the pasta is cooked properly drain the water and the spaghetti to prawn and mix well.
That's it you are done... drizzle some olive oil before serving and enjoy
While cooking pasta you should always add it in hot boiling water. There's no need of putting oil in the water it doesn't help in anyway. After draining the pasta from hot water put some chilled water and drain. Your pasta will never stick with each other!
Enjoy & let me know how you liked it.
