Prawn, Parsley & Lemon Butter Sauce Spaghetti

A great and quick main for those balmy, summer months.


  • 400g dried spaghetti
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, crushed
  • A handful of parsley, finely chopped
  • 80g- 100g unsalted butter
  • 3 tbsp lemon juice
  • 400g cooked and peeled tiger prawns, deveined
  • 1/4 cup white wine
  • A couple of dashes of chilli flakes
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Quality EVOO, to drizzle at finish


  1. Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil. Add the spaghetti and cook according to pack instructions or until the pasta is al dente.
  2. Shortly before the spaghetti is ready, put the butter and garlic into a large deep frying pan or shallow saucepan over a medium-high heat.
  3. As soon as the garlic starts to sizzle, add prawns and some seasoning and cook for 2-3 minutes, until the prawns are heated through. Add wine and parsley, continue to cook for another 2 minutes approximately.
  4. Drain the spaghetti and add to the pan of prawns with a couple of dash of chilli flakes and toss together well. Divide between 4 warmed pasta bowls and serve with a drizzle of quality extra virgin olive oil. Salt and pepper to taste.

Enjoy !
