This is a quick and delicious meal. Anchovies and spot prawns are rich in omega 3 fatty acids and have a lovely salty flavour.
Simple ingredients make this a delicious but nutritious meal.
Spot Prawn Pasta
3- 4 anchovy fillets
1 lb spot prawns- washed and deshelled
4 tomatoes- roma or campari -diced
1 bunch parsley (stems and leaf)
1 Tbsp olive oil and/or butter
1/2 lemon- juice and zest
3 cloves garlic- minced
pinch of chili flakes - for extra heat if desired
salt and pepper to taste
grated pecorino romano cheese (sheep milk) on top if desired.
bring water to a boil and cook pasta to desired consistency.
In deep pan sauté starting with garlic, chilies, oil and anchovies for about 5 minutes. Add chopped parsley stems, tomatoes, spot prawns and lemon juice and cook till desired tenderness and spot prawns are fully cooked. Finish with S+P, parsley leaves and cheese on top if desired.
Note: if you're not an anchovie fan, these can easily be omitted from the recipe without loosing flavour.
