I am having a ‘doing’ day today, just the boring stuff, washing, cleaning, vacuuming, stripping beds etc – the life I lead 🤣
A Quick simple supper is needed and having some remaining Iceland King Prawns left, I thought Garlic Prawn Spaghetti with a touch of fresh herbs and lemon 😉
I defrost the prawns, then half them lengthways (fools Hubby into thinking he’s got loads 🤣)
Finely slice a small onion and 2 fat cloves of garlic, and gently fry in a good glug of olive oil and a knob of butter.
I use Vermouth instead of white wine, a good splash and cook out – it’s just for the flavour.
When softening, add 4 quartered Vine Tomatoes fry quickly then add 300ml of chicken or veg stock a pinch of pepper and cook down till slightly thickened. Add half a bunch of chopped parsley (I use the stalks) and the juice of half a lemon.
Whilst this is reducing, put the spaghetti on, I cook it in the Thermomix as I like to watch it ‘twirl’ – but a pan of boiling water does just as well.
Just as the pasta is ready, add the prawns to the sauce, and another knob of butter, stir through.
Drain the pasta, just before you add to the sauce, put the remaining half of the chopped herbs into the sauce – then mix it all together.
Plate up and squirt the other half of them lemon juice over – Enjoy 😊
