One of our favourite dishes. We have this at least once in every two weeks. It’s very quick and has clean sharp flavours. Great for a quick meal in the evening with some white wine!
Ingredients (for 2 people):
Half a packet of linguine (you could substitute spaghetti but I prefer linguine)
2 cloves garlic
Sundried tomato paste
1 glass dry white wine
Prawns ~ 300g, preferably raw, shelled and de-veined
Extra virgin olive oil
Finely chop the garlic and saute in some olive oil until translucent. be careful not to burn it as it will ruin the flavour.
Add a couple of tablespoons of the sundried tomato paste and fry with the garlic for a couple of minutes.
Add the white wine and cook off the alcohol, again, just a few minutes.
In the background cook the pasta for however long it says on the packet – usually 10/11 minutes.
Add the prawns to the garlic, sundried tomato paste & wine and cook for 5 minutes or so until the prawns are pink (you could just add cooked prawns at this point but they will be a little tougher). Season to taste.
Toss the prawns in the cooked linguine.
Dress the rocket with some lemon juice & a little extra virgin olive oil and serve on top of the prawns with linguine.
