King prawns with butter, garlic and white wine


Another quick and tasty summer supper:

Put some spaghetti on the boil, and chop a clove of garlic finely. When the pasta is almost al dente, remove from the heat and put aside (leaving it in the hot water). In a large frying pan, melt a knob of butter and fry the garlic until almost brown. Add half a glass of white wine (not your finest Chablis but any wine you cook with should be good enough to drink) and cook until the alcohol has boiled off- around a minute. Toss in your king prawns and cook until pink. Add a squeeze of lemon juice and some coarsely chopped flat leaf parsley. Season with black pepper, toss in the pasta and serve with toasted bread to soak up any juice. Bosh!
