Pasta with Wild Spot Prawns


Inspired by Good Fish by Becky Selengut

Serves 4

1/4 cup organic extra virgin olive oil, plus more at the end for serving
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 can fire roasted diced tomatoes
1/2 cup white wine
1/4 cup pitted kalamata olives, chopped
1 tablespoon capers, chopped
1 tablespoon kosher salt, for salting pasta pot
10 ounces fresh linguine or fettuccini
zest of 1 lemon
4 ounces goat cheese
1 tray Vital Choice wild Pacific spot prawns, thawed, peeled, deveined
1/2 cup chopped Italian parsley
Fresh basil, for garnish

Set a large pasta pot filled with water over high heat.

  • In a large sauté pan over medium-high heat, add the olive oil. After a minute, add the garlic, cayenne, olives, and capers, and cook for 2 minutes, stirring, to flavor the oil.
  • Turn the heat to medium-low. Add the wine and tomatoes and let simmer for 5 to 7 minutes.
  • When the water boils, add the salt. Add the pasta and cook for just a few minutes (you will finish the cooking in the pan with the sauce). Drain in a colander, reserving 1 cup of the pasta cooking liquid.
  • Add the pasta to the sauté pan and stir into the sauce. Add pasta cooking water if it seems dry.
  • Add the goat cheese, prawns, lemon zest, and parsley and cook, tossing, until the pasta is done to your liking and the spot prawns have just started to curl a bit. Garnish with fresh basil.
