Simple Supper – Garlic King Prawn Spaghetti

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.

img_2589When 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 😊

Hi - I'm a 49 yo Mum to 3 kids - Jordan (23), Grace (21) and Max (19). And Wife to my lovely Husband, Dave and step mum to 4 fur babies, our cats Eric, Ernie, Cilla and Bobbie. We live on the beautiful Isle of Wight, Hubby and I were born here, and just love our home. As I hurtle towards 50, my life as a full time (working) parent is coming to an end, with my eldest 2 kids living their own lives, and my youngest who started University in September. I realised that this is not a time to be sad, but a time to take time to spend time on some of the things I enjoy doing - mainly cooking, crafting and creating Pinterest boards for said thing s :) This blog is just a way for me to record the next stages of our lives - I hope you enjoy my ramblings...
