Thai Prawn Spaghetti

As previously said in "Lamb Spinach Spaghetti", I am a strong advocate of not wasting ingredients. The balance of the spaghetti I had came in handy for this dish - big bold and colorful Thai flavours.

1/4 packet (about 200g) spaghetti - cook according to the packet instructions
10 fresh medium size prawns
1 tsp ginger paste
3 shallots - chopped
1/2 red capsicum - cubed 
2 green chilies - 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 chili
Salt for taste
Blanch prawns in ginger paste.
Remove and once cool down, slice into two pieces
Add prawns with all the rest of ingredients into a large bowl.
Mix and stir these ingredients together.
Lastly add spaghetti and toss together.

  1. the pasta is really nice...
    should be very appetizing...

  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. The scrumptious prawns and generous portions of ingredients will see off any competition
