One of our favs. The classic garlic prawn dish made better with fresh Australian Prawns. It's a simple, easy, tasty recipe suited to midweek meals as well as special occasions.
Peel the prawns and cut them in half lengthways.
Cook the pasta in a large saucepan of boiling salted water for 8‐10 minutes or until al dente. Drain reserving ¼ cup pasta water and keep warm.
Heat the butter and oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the garlic, chilli and lemon zest. Cook, stirring for 2 minutes or until golden.
Add the prawns and cook, stirring, for 2‐3 minutes or until the prawns are tender.
Add the pasta, lemon juice, parsley and reserved pasta water.
Season with sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper and toss to combine.
