2 long red chillies
100ml extra-virgin olive oil, plus extra
200g bag frozen, shelled cooked prawns, defrosted
- Cook the spaghetti in boiling salted water according to pack instructions.
- While the spaghetti is cooking, split the chillies down the centre lengthways. Using a teaspoon and starting at the top, scoop the seeds from the flesh – add these if you like your food hot. Using a sharp knife, cut the chillies in thin strips, bundle them together and cut across to make squares.
- Drain the spaghetti, toss with a drizzling of olive oil and set aside. Heat the oil in a deep frying pan or sauté pan over a high heat and add the prawns. Stir in the chillies, season, then add the spaghetti.
