Call it a prawn linguine or a shrimp pasta, this dish will transport you and your taste buds to a fine dining restaurant by the Mediterranean seaside. You can now make this shrimp pasta dish fast at home, where it can take many hours in a professional kitchen. If you’re a seafood lover, the flavours will leave you breathless I promise you. Restaurant food is always a level higher because of the slow cooked stock that take hours if not days to make. Who’s got time to do that at home! But this recipe uses the prawn heads and shells, and it only takes 30 minutes.
So it’s well worth the extra effort of making the stock, as that’s where the magic lies. This recipe provides three prawns per person, fairly much what you would receive in a fine dining restaurant, but for me, I like to double the quantity, just saying… A tasty Mediterranean dish combining both French and Italian influences. Please, keep the cheese away from this one.
Happy cooking!
