Spaghetti with Prawns, Smoked Chipotle and Lemon Butter

My recent trip to Italy inspired me to share a couple of pasta dishes and also to give the crockpot a final spin before we hit the BBQ season. The spaghetti dish is so simple and takes no time at all to throw together, yet rewarding with its super punchy flavours.

  1. Cook the spaghetti following the packet instructions in a large saucepan of well salted boiling water till just cooked – al dente.
  2. Heat a large fry pan, melt the butter, and add the prawns and chipotle Tabasco, toss till the prawns are cooked.
  3. Add the lemon zest and juice, mix to combine.
  4. Season with sea salt and pepper.
  5. Drain the spaghetti and toss through the prawn mixture.
  6. Serve in pasta bowls, sprinkle over parsley and serve with lemon wedges.
