Prawn Linguine

Linguine with Prawns, Chilli & Garlic

Linguine is like spaghetti only slightly flatter so not as rounded. It goes great with seafood especially crab and prawns.

This is a really easy dish to make and doesn’t take much time at all so makes a great lunch or even a dinner for those days when you are too busy to make something more complicated.

The main ingredient in this dish is pasta so try buy the best quality pasta that you can find. My favourite is De Cecco followed by Barilla, look for the ones containing egg or all’uovo which means with egg. Personally, I wouldn’t make this dish using a cheap pasta as it won’t be very nice. You really will notice a massive difference if you use a good quality pasta.

I really like the selection of cheese available to us here in Ireland so try to use an Irish cheese over parmesan whenever I can. Mossfield Organic Farmhouse Cheese is one of my favourites to use instead of parmesan and I love supporting small Irish producers when possible.

Getting ready…

You will need – 1 large pot, 1 non stick pan. 1 sharp knife, 1 chopping board, 1 wooden spoon or similar and 1 colander.


Cook the pasta as per the instructions on the packet ensuring you don’t overcook it, you want it to have a little bite to it.


When cooked, strain out the hot water then give it a quick rinse under a cold tap.


While the pasta is cooking, finely chop the chilli, garlic and spring onion and set to one side for a moment.


Heat the oil and butter on a pan until the butter melts then add the chilli, garlic and spring onion, cook for 1 minute then add the prawns.


Cook this until the prawns turn pink, about 2 minutes then add the chopped basil leaves if using them and a few twists of the pepper mill.


Add the pasta and stir well for 2 -3 minutes, you want the oil, butter and other ingredients to mix into the pasta really well.


Portion onto plates then grate a little Mossfield Farmhouse Cheese or parmesan over the top and serve with crusty bread and a nice glass of white wine.
