1 onion finely chopped
2 teaspoons crushed garlic
Pinch paprika (about ¼ teaspoon)
750g queen prawns shelled
120g butter (I know its a lot but it makes all the difference)
½ cup verjuice
Palm of chopped fresh parsley (about 3 tablespoons)
Salt and pepper
Cook your pasta in a large pot of salted boiling water.
In a pan over a medium to hot heat add a good splash of olive oil
or about 2 tablespoons. Add the onions and saute for about 3
minutes until they are starting to go transparent. Now add the
garlic and paprika, stir and saute for another 1 minute being
careful not to brown the garlic.
Add the prawns and toss them around for 2 minutes to cook a
little, then add the butter , cook until the butter has
melted, add the parsley, season with salt and pepper and allow to
simmer for another 2 minutes or so until the prawns have turned a
nice pink and are cooked through. The sauce should thicken a
little and become glossy.
Drain you pasta, place in a large serving bowl with the shrimp
sauce poured over the top.
Serve this incredibly delicious prawn pasta with a simple green
salad and crusty bread.
The recipe is a bit difficult to simply double up but if you are
having a 6 people or so I would suggest you make the sauce in two
separate pans, it just seems to work out better.
Enjoy it folks.
