This is my favorite pasta with prawns. I just kind of threw these ingredients together at home a few years ago and have been making it since cause it tastes just divine! It is very quick to make and so delicious. In fact it is so good, you can totally serve it for a nice dinner with friends. Takes only 15 minutes to make, so simple and easy it is.
I used urfa chili flakes in this, but feel free to use any type of chili flakes you have on hand.
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 packet fresh fettuccine
1 small chopped onion
3 cloves garlic, chopped
2 chopped red chillies
splash of white wine
250 grams shrimp or prawns (peeled with tails left on)
4-6 tablespoons cream
1/2 teaspoon chilli flakes
lemon zest of half a lemon
juice of 1/2 to 1 lemon depending on your taste
1 – 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
Place your salted water on the hob to boil for the fettuccine.
Heat oil in a frying pan, and add your onion and garlic. Cook for a couple of minutes and stir on med heat. Now add in your prawns and chopped red chili. Stir. Add salt and pepper. When prawns start to go a bit pink, add a splash of white wine. Stir. Once the wine has dried a little add in your cream, lemon juice, lemon zest, chili flakes and dill. Drop you fettuccine in the water (should only take 2-3 minutes). Cook for another minute or so till every thing is warm and comes together. Do not over cook your prawns.
Drain your pasta and add to the sauce. Toss. Serve at once, sprinkled with some more dill on top and parmesan if you like.
