Five servings
Prepare for ten minutes.
Cook for fifteen minutes.



  • Twelve ounces of linguine
  • 1 1/2 pounds of extra large
  • skinned and deviened prawns
  • Triple-trussed olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 4 minced garlic cloves (4 tsp)
  • Half a cup of dry white wine
  • Freshly ground black pepper and salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon optional red pepper flakes
  • Two tsp of lemon juice, fresh
  • 1/4 cup of freshly chopped parsley


  • As directed on the package, cook the linguine. Before draining, set aside 1/4 cup of pasta water in case you want to thin the dish later.
  • In the meantime, melt butter in a 12-inch skillet over medium heat with olive oil. When the garlic is just softly browned, add it and sauté it for one to two minutes (don’t brown or it will taste bitter).
  • Add the wine and simmer for two to three minutes, or until reduced by half.
  • Add the shrimp in an even layer, season with the salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes, and cook for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes on each side, or until the shrimp become pink.
  • Add lemon juice and parsley, then toss the spaghetti with the prawns and sauce. When necessary, thin with pasta water. Serve right away.


  1. You can use low-sodium chicken broth instead.
  2. Instead of spaghetti, prawns can alternatively be served alongside fresh, crusty bread for dipping in sauce.
