Macaroni with Garlic Prawns

Macaroni with Garlic Prawns


  • 250g macaroni
  • 250g fresh peeled prawns
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 or 2 cayenne chili peppers
  • 250ml white wine
  • 1 tbsp dried herbs
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Bring some water to a boil in a saucepan and then add the pasta and cook according to the guidelines until ‘al dente’. Typically between 7-10 minutes.
  2. In a frying pan add the olive oil and set on a medium heat. Slice your garlic and then add it to the pan and cook it for a couple of minutes.
  3. Next add the wine and cayenne chilis and cook for another couple of minutes. Then add the prawns.
  4. When the prawns start to colour and their flesh turns white and red, add some paprika. Stir for a while and then turn off the heat.
  5. Mix the garlic prawns with the pasta, along with all the juice from the wine and prawns. Garnish with dried herbs of your choice. Add salt and pepper to taste.
