Serves: 2


Prawn Marinade:

2 big tiger prawns

1/2 tbsp. coarse chili powder

2 tbsp. Shaoxing cooking wine

2 servings of spaghetti

1 tbsp. Olive Oil

3 cloves of garlic

5 baby eryngii mushrooms, sliced

1. Clean prawns, de-veined, leave the head and tail intact.

2. Marinade prawn for an hour. Drain. Keep the liquid for pasta. Blow torch till prawns turning to red. About a minute each side. Set aside.

3. Cook pasta in salt water (with oil) according to the packaging instruction. I'm using Limon Linguine from Naples.

5. Add pasta into the pan, moist with some pasta water and mix the pasta well with the mushrooms and herbs.
