So last night I decided to have my hubby to be over for dinner. The decision was sudden, I usually eat at their place since I have moved here. I had Medium size prawns at home. So this is what I made, I won’t guarantee the quantities cause I made this up and it came out to be yummy.
Wheat or Whole Grain Pasta
1 kg medium size prawns
Fresh Garlic cloves peeled (4 or 5)
Fresh Lime Juice (1 lime)
Spring Onions (I used 2 )
Salt & Pepper to taste
Dash of Pepper
One small tomato
Put all these ingredients except Shrimp & tomato into a grinder to make a paste. Now take 1 or 2 little spoons of the paste and marinate your shrimp in it. Cover the shrimp and refrigerate for 1 hour.
Add the tomato to the remaining paste and grind. Now take this thin paste and boil it in a pot for about 8 to 10 minutes on medium heat till it thickens a little. This becomes your pasta sauce. Set aside.
After one hour: I don’t have a grill or oven @ my place so I used a regular pan on high heat and grilled my prawns without adding the oil (the oil in the marinate is enough). Set Aside
Boil water and make your pasta as usual. When the pasta is ready mix well with the sauce & shrimp.
Enjoy it with a side of fresh salad or garlic bread!
Let me know if you did try this one and what you think!
