220g (uncooked) linguine pasta (GF if required)
2 tbsp unsalted butter
450g prawns, peeled and deveined
3 garlic cloves, crushed
¼ tsp crushed red pepper
50ml white wine
1 lemon, juiced and zested
A pinch salt and black pepper
A handful parsley, chopped
A handful Parmesan cheese, grated
In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook the linguine until al dente.
Meanwhile, melt the butter in a large pan over a medium heat before adding the prawns, garlic and crushed red pepper. Sauté for 3 minutes, or until the prawns have turned pink and the garlic and pepper smell aromatic.
Squeeze the lemon juice and pour the wine into the pan and season to perfection.
Let the sauce reduce for 5 minutes before removing from the heat and stirring in the pasta, zest and parsley, which will add some freshness to the dish.
Mix well before serving immediately with a handful of Parmesan cheese scattered on top.
