A delicious and flavourful spaghetti dish with sweet and tender scampi


The method

  1. Cook the spaghetti in boiling water-add salt- you always need more then you think- 'as salty as the Mediterranean'.
  2. While the spaghetti is cooking, heat the oil in a large pan and gently cook the chilli, garlic, and shallots until soft.
  3. Add the Dublin Bay Prawns (langoustines), parsley and white wine, put on the lid, and turn the heat up.
  4. Give the pan a good shake and after 4 to 5 minutes your prawns should be pink.
  5. Add the butter and cooked spaghetti to the pan with the prawns and stir over a low heat.
  6. Serve immediately with crusty bread to soak up the juices.
