Yields2 Servings

A quick and nutrious recipe that take hardly any time to prepare.

Harissa prawns spaghetti

 250 g Wholewheat spaghetti
 1 tbsp Olive oil
 1 Clove garlic, peeled
 1 Lemon
 1 Red chilli, finely chopped
 2 tbsp Harissa paste
 180 g Thawed & peeled king prawns
 2 Large handfuls of baby spinach
 1 pinch Sea salt flakes

Bring a large saucepan of salted water to the boil and cook the pasta according to packet instructions. Before draining reserve a little of the pasta cooking water.


Meanwhile, in a large pan, I prefer to use a wok as it can easily take the cooked pasta later, add the oil. Using a fine grater, grate the garlic into the cold oil. Then zest the lemon directly into the pan and add the chopped chilli.


Turn a high heat on under the pan stir with a wooden spoon until it begins to sizzle then add the harissa. Stir again for a moment before adding the king prawns. Cook the prawns for 2 -3 minutes then add the spinach and stir until the spinach is wilted and the prawns cooked through.


Add the cooked spaghetti to the pan along with a tablespoon of the reserved pasta cooking water until the scant amount of fiery sauce coats the pasta. Add a little sea salt and give a final toss together before splitting between two bowls and serving.
