Lime Chilli Garlic Prawns


  • Baby Spinach - Handful
  • Chilli - 1
  • Garlic - 3 Cloves
  • Lime (whole) - 2
  • Parsley - Handful
  • Prawns - 400-500grams
  • Spaghetti - 1/2 - 1 Packet
  • Spring Onion - 1
  • Tomatoes, Diced - 4
  • White Wine - 1/2 Cup

Prepare Ingredients

This is a very quick to cook recipe, so prepare everything in advance, and set a pot of water boiling for the pasta (with a little olive oil and salt). Finely dice the tomatoes, garlic, spring onion and chilli (remove the seeds unless you like it really hot!).


Heat a large pan on medium to high heat, and add 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Add the prawns, and stir until they start to colour, then add the chilli and garlic (be careful it doesn't burn) and stir for 30seconds or until the prawns are starting to look cooked.

Set your spaghetti boiling in the water at this stage.

To the pan, add the spinach, spring onion, tomatoes and parsley. Stir for a minute, and then add the white wine, and the juice from the limes, and turn back down to low heat. You should also add some of the lime zest to the mixture for some extra taste.


Drain the pasta once ready, and stir the prawn mixture in, serve straight away.
