There is nothing quite like a tasty, wholesome dish to tuck into after a busy day. To make it even more satisfying is when the meal takes no longer than thirty minutes to prepare. We had a bottle of white wine chilling in the fridge and decided to make a classic pasta dish with a very simple recipe, which includes Juicy king prawns, spaghetti, butter, salt, pepper, garlic, lemon, lime, onions, mushrooms and olive oil. The meal tasted so delicious we had to share with you all. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
1: Wash and drain the king prawns, add to a bowl. Cut a whole lemon in to two and squeeze over the prawns, then leave to stand.
2: Boil a pot of water and add a pinch of salt to the boiling water.
3: Pre heat a large pan, add 2 tablespoons of butter and a drizzle of olive oil.
4: Peel and finely chop the garlic, onions and mushrooms.
5: Add the pasta to the pot of boiling water. You may need to add another pinch of salt (if needed) and bring to the boil over a high heat.
6: The pasta should take around 5-6 minutes boil. (Keep your eye on this as you don’t want the pasta to get too soft).
7: Add your chopped garlic, onions and mushrooms to your hot pan and mix together for 2 minutes until your contents begins to soften.
8: Now, add the king prawns to the pan and sprinkle black pepper, mix and cook for 5-6 minutes until the prawns are cooked through.
9: When done, drain the pasta. Once the king prawns are cooked, add the pasta to a serving plate then add your prawn mix.
10: For the finishing touch, sprinkle a little more black pepper or squeeze half a lemon to brighten the flavours and enjoy.
