Prawn lime and asparagus linguine


For the linguine

  • Preheat oven to 180* C (350* F) Fan.
  • You will need a 25 cm ovenproof pan (with a metallic handle not a plastic one).
  • Chop off the ends of the asparagus with a sharp knife – about 2 cm.
  • Use a small knife to remove the small leaves along the stem, until you get to the tender tips.
  • Place the asparagus in a bowl and coat with 1 tablespoon of olive oil.
  • Thinly slice the garlic and add it to the same bowl. Season with salt and pepper and gently mix so that they don’t break.
  • Spread them in the pan, making sure they are not placed one on top of the other and bake for 4-6 minutes, until they soften.
  • Remove from oven and push all of the asparagus to one side of the pan.

For the prawns

  • Remove the heads and shells from the prawns (leaving only the tail on) and place in a bowl.
  • Finely chop the garlic and add it to the bowl along with the olive oil, salt, paprika, chili flakes, cherry tomatoes and finely chopped parsley.
  • Mix with a spoon and place them across from the asparagus in the pan.
  • Divide the butter over both the asparagus and the prawns.
  • Bake for 6 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and drizzle with lime juice.
  • Serve the prawns and asparagus with the boiled linguine and accompany with lime wedges.
