Thai Prawn Spaghetti

Certainty it is impossible to use a whole packet of spaghetti when you make a moderate serving of "Lamb Spinach Spaghetti". Wouldn't have made sense as well because a big portion of the spaghetti dish can't possibly remain fresh forever in the fridge and also we generally prefer a rice meal (Yellow Chicken Curry & Thai Green Vegetable Curry). However, any ingredient for the matter must be used up, therefore, I made with this Thai Prawn (Prawn Mee Hoon SoupNasi Lemak Prawn Sambal & Prawn Yogurt Salad) Spaghetti. Simply put together for the quintessential Thai flavours (Green Fish Curry, Noodles In Thai Sauce, Fish Chilli Lime, Thai Salmon Noodle Soup & Thai Spicy Carrot Soup). 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 chillies 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 and gently remove the veins. .   
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. The scrumptious prawns and generous portions of ingredients will see off any competition
