Easy Prawn and Rocket Linguine

I made this for x2 people, but I always made FAR to much. This could probably feed more. Just chuck it all in, and see how it goes.. thats what I do!


  • 4 Cloves Garlic
  • 2 Large Red Onions
  • 1/2 fresh chilli
  • Tub of cherry tomatoes
  • Parsley
  • Splash of White Wine
  • Rock Salt and Black Petter
  • Lemon
  • Fresh or Frozen King Prawns
  • Linguine
  • Rocket for garnish

This is such an easy and impressive dinner to knock up in 10 minutes. To save money, replace the cherry tomatoes with tinned, and you can even use chicken!


Start by boiling a some water for the pasta.

Finley chop the onion and garlic. Add the garlic into a frying pan with a splash of oil and lightly fry until it starts to go soft, but not quite brown! Then chuck in the garlic and fry off for 10 seconds. Its very important, not to burn the garlic. I like it fresh and very ‘garlicly’ if you don’t, half the amount and add only 1/2 cloves. Then add in the finely chopped chilli, you can deseed, I don’t as I like it spicy!

Add your pasta into the saucepan and leave to simmer away for around 10 minutes, although it should say on the pack.

Then half the tomatoes and throw them in with a splash of white wine, large pinch of salt and crack in some black pepper. Cook through until the tomatoes start to soften.

Add in the prawns and cook until they turn pink. This shouldn’t take to long, around 3/5 minutes.

Sprinkle over a large handful of chopped parsley and stir in with a remaining squeeze of lemon, and salt and pepper to taste.

You can either add the cooked pasta into the sauce, or serve the sauce on top of the pasta.

Finish it off with a handful of rocket, which gives a lovely crunch and bitter favour that balances out the sweet tomatoes and salty sauce.



This is my own recipe that is one of my all time favourites, you can chip and change ingredients to make it your own personal dish and they way you like it! I would love to see your photos and feedback!
