Linguine with prawns, lemon and parsley

Bring a pan of salted water to the boil, add the linguine and cook for 3 minutes less than advised on the packet. Reserve 100ml of the pasta water
Put the garlic and chilli into a saucepan with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil and fry until the garlic is golden brown
Pour 100ml of water from the linguine pan into the pan of garlic and cook the linguine for the final 3 minutes of its cooking time
When there are just 30 seconds of the cooking time left add the prawns and quickly stir them through, then take the pan off the heat and add the lemon zest, parsley and remaining tablespoon of olive oil until you have a creamy sauce. The heat from the pan will cook the prawns in seconds. Transfer to a heated serving dish and serve immediately
  • 1/2 lemon, zest only
