Unfortunately for me the only movie (that I have seen) of this book is a worthless piece of rubbish that retells the whole story making the main character a sassy, take-no-prisoners brunette which makes you want to cry in pain. However, I retain my faith in the human race and am headed to the theatre this afternoon to watch Persuasion at the Seattle Center; which makes me only very slightly less excited than the cure for cancer, world peace and the creation of a 0 calorie full flavor creme brulee rolled into one. Obviously such sublime anticipation calls for pasta.
Angel Hair Pasta with Tiger Prawns
You have to be crazy to hate on a prawn. At least one that is properly cooked. The key to this dish is getting the prawns uncooked, if you go to the store or market and all they have is pink pre-cooked little monsters turn your back and run. I just get tiger prawns frozen, uncooked, from costco, but in the summer I often get a little bag full from Pikes Place Market to take home and have that night. But since the prawns don't have to stand alone in this pasta, I think the frozen are just fine.
8 Cloves Garlic
2 Fresh, Ripe Tomatoes
1 teaspoon cream
6 Tiger Prawns
First, what you want to do is put a splash of olive oil in a pan on medium heat and let that get nice and warm.
Then add the salt, pepper, garlic cut into slivers, and Tiger Prawns, once they are cooked on one side flip them over and add in the tomatoes, cream and herbs.
Cook the prawns a little more and then take them out, and let your sauce reduce a bit while you cook your pasta and shell your prawns.
Don't forget to add salt to the water while you cook your pasta, you can even add in the shells from your prawns which adds great flavor! Test the sauce and see if it needs more salt or pepper, then drain your pasta and toss with the sauce, and place the prawns on top of the whole thing for an aw-inspiring & delicious lunch in under 15 minutes.
