Ingredients

375g thin spaghetti or angel hair pasta
1/4 cup chicken stock
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1/4 cup chopped spring onions/shallots
500g small green prawns, shelled and deveined
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil or 2 teaspoon dried basil
2 tablespoons chopped fresh coriander or 2 teaspoons dried coriander
6 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon dried red pepper flakes


1. Prepare pasta according to pack directions, but do not add salt.


2. While pasta is cooking, heat stock in a large frying pan, over a medium heat.


Add garlic and spring onions; cook, stirring occasionally, for 2 minutes.


3. Stir in the prawns, parsley, basil, coriander, lemon juice and red pepper flakes. Cook, stirring frequently, just until prawns become opaque and turn pink, about 5 minutes.


4. Drain pasta in a colander.


Divide pasta among 4 individual serving bowls. Spoon prawn mixture over pasta.


Serve immediately.


MICROWAVE


To prepare pasta, place 6 cups hot water in a microwave safe bowl.


Cover, bring to the boil on High, about 10 minutes.


Place pasta in water.


Cook on High for 10 minutes, stirring once. Drain.


TIPS:


Perfectly cooked prawns are ready when the flesh turns from transparent to opaque. The prawns should also begin to curl slightly.


Thaw frozen prawns in a bowl in the refrigerator - never on the kitchen bench. Defrosting at room temperature can cause bacterial contamination.
