Cajun Prawn Pasta


Cajun Prawn Pasta
Serves 5

This pasta was so delicious! 😋 my 13yo has already requested I make it again. It has a tiny bit of a kick to it, but the amount of seasoning can be changed to suit taste. You can also use chicken instead of prawns.

• 600g prawns
• 400g linguine
• 1 400g tin crushed tomatoes
• 300ml light thickened cream
• 1 cup chicken stock
• 1 green capsicum thinly sliced
• 1 red capsicum thinly sliced
• 1 brown onion diced
• 4 garlic cloves crushed
• 1 tablespoon Cajun seasoning* (add less or more depending on taste)
• Olive oil
• Salt & pepper for seasoning

1. Place prawns in a bowl and coat with Cajun seasoning. Wrap and allow to marinate in the fridge for at least 1 hour.
2. Heat some olive oil in a deep pan over a medium high heat. Cook prawns for 2 minutes each side, or until golden, in two batches and put aside on a plate. Add some more oil and fry onion for 5 minutes. Add garlic and fry for a further 2 minutes before adding capsicum. Fry for a further 5 minutes.
3. Pour in crushed tomatoes, chicken stock and cream. Season with salt and pepper. Turn heat down and allow to simmer for 15 minutes, or until sauce starts to thicken. In the meantime cook pasta per packet instructions.
4. Add prawns back to sauce and simmer further until cooked through. Stir through cooked pasta. Serve.

*I use Masterfoods Cajun seasoning but there are also plenty of recipes on Google.
