Prawn & Chili-lime Spaghetti

Easy and simple meal for weeknights...

I think most of our recently all about quick, fast and easy meal! As I feel like I'm running so many things lately.. I can't cope with things properly at the moment ha-ha needed to do some time management I guess..But anyway most of us prefer a quick recipe don't we? Less time spend in the kitchen..

Love the lime-prawn flavors together.

We make this prawn & chili-lime spaghetti only took us 30 minutes to prepare everything.


400g dried spaghetti
4 garlic cloves
2-4 red or green chilis
3 spring onions
2 tbsp olive oil
1 lime
450g peeled and deveined raw prawns
2 tbsp butter


Bring a large saucepan of lightly salted water to the boil, add the spaghetti, bring back to the boil and cook for 8-10 minutes, or until tender but still firm. Meanwhile, peel and press the garlic, deseed and dice the chilis and thinly slice the spring onions.

Drain the pasta in a colander and return the pan to the heat. Add the oil and heat over a medium-heat. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, for 1-2 minutes until the garlic begin to soften. Add the chilis and 1/2 tsp of salt and cook, stirring occasionally, until it blend well.

Zest and juice the lime, Add the prawns and lime zest and juice to the pot. Add the spring onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until the prawns are pink and cooked through. Add the butter and reserved spaghetti and cook, stirring 1-2 minutes until most of the liquid has evaporated and serve immediately.
