This is a creative take on 'prawn linguine'. Making spaghetti out of zucchini is easy with 'Veggie Spaghetti Makers' readily availablle in stores. Alternatively, with some patience, you can use a vegetable peeler or julienne device.


Preparing the Ingredients

Shell the prawns, leaving the tail on if desired, and store in the fridge until ready to use. Make the zucchini spaghetti and place in a large bowl. Fill a large saucepan with water and bring to the boil. Turn off the heat then plunge the zucchini spaghetti into the water and blanch for a minute till just tender. Strain into a colander and set aside. Remove the seeds from the chilli and chop finely.
 

Making the Meal

Heat the olive oil in a large skillet. Add the garlic and fry gently till turning golden. If using the cream, add now and simmer to reduce it a little. Next add the prawns and toss on medium heat until almost cooked. Add the chilli and blanched zucchini spaghetti and toss through until prawns are ready. Divide across four plates and garnish with some chilli slices.
