Spicy Coconut Curried Pasta

Spicy Coconut Curried Prawn Pasta

There was an amazing special on prawns at Food Lovers Market last week so of course I bought two bags, haha! Tonight I cooked them both and made two pastas. A spicy one for us and a plainer one for the girls. It was very much an experimental dish but it turned out pretty great so here’s the recipe…

  • 1 tin of coconut milk
  • 1 small bottle of pasta sauce (I used the Ina Paarman Tomato and Basil)
  • 6 cloves of garlic
  • 2 chillies
  • 5-8 curry leaves
  • prawns
  • spaghetti
  • Grate the garlic and add to a sauce pan with the chillies and curry leaves. Fry them out a bit to cook the garlic.
  • Next add in the tin of coconut milk and tomato paste and mix well. Let this simmer on a low heat for about twenty minutes.
  • While the sauce is cooking, shell your prawns and season with salt and pepper.
  • Heat up a pan and add a splash of olive oil. Once the pan is hot, add a few prawns at a time. Cooking it this way will give the prawns a lovely colour on the outside without overcooking them.
  • Once its all done, set the prawns aside and boil your spaghetti.
  • The pasta sauce should be ready now. Add in your prawns and sauce and mix well then serve hot and enjoy!
