Thai Prawn Spaghetti

Certainty it is impossible to use a whole packet of spaghetti when you make a moderate serving of the "Lamb Spinach Spaghetti". Doesn't also make sense by using the whole pocket because the big portion of the dish cannot remain fresh forever in the fridge. Furthermore, since we usually prefer rice, says it all a spaghetti dish is a once a while meal. But ingredienst must be used up as well, so I made this Thai style dish - simply put together for the quintessential Thai flavours. Yes! as always food has to be spicy for us.   

1/4 packet (about 200g) spaghetti - cook according to the packet instructions
10 fresh medium size prawns
1/2 tsp ginger paste or chopped ginger
1/2 tsp garlic paste or chopped garlic
3 shallots - chopped
1/2 red capsicum - cubed 
2 green chillies - cut into thin stripes
3-4 kaffir lime leaves - shredded
1 tbsp fish sauce
1/2 tbsp lime juice
4 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp sugar
3-4 birds eye or 1 red chilli
Salt for taste (taste before adding)
Blanch prawns in simmering water to cook. 
Remove and cool down. Then remove shells and heads, slice into two pieces, gently remove the veins and lightly rinsed.   
Add prawns with all the rest of ingredients inside a large bowl.
Mix and stir all of them together. 
Lastly toss in spaghetti.

  2. Sorry about the lamb spaghetti not being a sell-out, I like lamb 'tho, this recipe is a sure winner (even 'tho I'm allergic to sea food)-it looks utterly delicious and tempting, I'm sure sea food lovers will devour this dish in no time.
