A simple but strongly flavoured pasta main course served with rocket leaves.

I've used 2 dried Chile de árbol which made this dish nice and spicy. If you don't want it too hot then remove and discard the seeds.

  1. Cook the spaghetti in plenty of boiling water for about 7 to 10 minutes
  2. Heat about 4 tablespoons of olive oil in a frying pan or a wok and gently cook the garlic and chili. As soon as the garlic starts to colour, add the prawns.Don't allow it to brown or it will be bitter.
  3. Stir in the sun-dried tomato puree and let it sizzle for 30 seconds
  4. Add the white wine and stir well.
  5. Once the wine has heater through toss the pasta in the sauce, add the lemon juice and serve.

Serving suggestions

Mix with the rocket, sprinkle with the lemon zest and drizzle with olive oil.


A tablespoon of satay sauce added a little more 'fishiness' and a subtle sweet flavour.
