Prawn linguine with rocket

Prawn linguine with rocket

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
1 lemon
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.
