I’ve chosen this recipe for my first post as it sums up what I’m hoping to achieve in this blog. It’s super-tasty and can be knocked up in next to no time. What more could you ask for?
After making Jim’s prawn linguine tonight, I had to ask myself why we don’t have it more often. Perfect al dente pasta combined with juicy prawns, peppery rocket and a delicious, zesty sauce is my idea of heaven on a plate. I should add that this view wasn’t shared by my toddler, who lapped up the linguine and sauce (minus the chilli) but didn’t go to great lengths to hide his disgust with the prawns and the capers. You can’t please everyone I guess.
As the name denotes, this take on the Italian dish linguine ai gamberi is my husband’s recipe rather than my own. Several years ago when we lived in different parts of the country, I would ask him to prepare this for me whenever I visited. I think it will always remind me of those cherished meetups. <3
