Garlic Prawn Spaghetti

PREP TIME

COOK TIME

SERVES

Ingredients

200g (7 oz) spaghettini

1 tbsp vegetable oil

400g (14 oz) peeled and deveined prawns

4 garlic cloves, finely chopped

½ tsp chilli flakes

3 tbsp soy sauce

2 tbsp oyster sauce

 

Spring onion & ginger sauce:

1 cup finely sliced spring onion (scallions)

1 tbsp finely chopped ginger

1 tsp sea salt

¼ cup vegetable oil

2 tsp sesame oil

Steps
  • Step 1

    To make the spring onion & ginger sauce, use a mortar and pestle to pound the spring onion, ginger and salt to a rough paste. Transfer to a heat-proof bowl.

  • Step 2

    Place the vegetable oil and sesame oil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Heat until a wooden spoon dipped into the oil forms small little bubbles. Now pour the hot oil over the spring onion mixture. Stir to combine. Set aside for later.

  • Step 3

    Cook the spaghettini in a large pot of boiling salted water until just al dente. Reserve 1 cup of the pasta cooking water in case you need to thin out the pasta sauce later.

  • Step 4

    While the pasta is cooking, heat the 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the garlic, prawns and chilli flakes. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until the prawns are pink and opaque. Pour over the soy sauce and oyster sauce. Simmer for a couple of minutes then turn the heat off until the pasta is ready.

  • Step 5

    Drain the pasta and add into the pan with the prawns. Turn the heat back to high and toss the pasta in the sauce for 2-3 minutes or until the sauce is thick and glossy (if it looks too thick for your liking, thin out with a little pasta water). Spoon over the spring onion & ginger sauce and toss. Divide among plates and serve.

Good but too salty

While I enjoyed this in general, the salt content was just too high (the sea salt in the green onion sauce + that in the soy sauce + that in the oyster sauce). Would make again perhaps with omitting the salt from the green onion sauce and maybe a bit less of the soy sauce.
