Garlic prawn spaghetti with spinach, a quick dish that is ready in under 30 minutes, ideal for a midweek dinner when time is ever so precious. Flavourful, filling, and so garlicky.

With prawns, one could either have a love or hate relationship. Some might find them not that appealing, others would have tons of prawns and still ask for more. I used to be part of the first category of people, up until I discovered that cooked nicely, they can be so delicious. Just plain prawns would have exactly this taste: plain and boring, nothing special. But add some garlic or some fiery spices and you won’t stop eating them.

I do love garlic, I must have said it thousands of times already, although for some reasons, I seem to stomach it easier if it is cooked, rather than raw. And luckily, most of the dishes could have some garlic added. Spaghetti can be cooked in so may different ways, a few favourite of mine beingย Italian Spaghetti Meatballs,ย Classic spaghetti carbonara recipeย orย Tomato and basil spaghetti. And now I can add these garlic prawn spaghetti to the list too.
