Spaghetti aglio e olio #sikandalouscuisine

A traditional pasta from Napoli , Spaghetti aglio e olio or spaghetti with garlic and oil is delicious . Here garlic is minced and lightly sauteed in olive oil - red chilies often added and spaghetti is then tossed in this flavoring it beautifully . Traditionally cheese isn't added to this preparation which is then garnished with parsley .
Spicy Shrimp Spaghetti Aglio e Olio #sikandalouscuisine
I gave this basic pasta a twist with prawns and basil leaves and plated a flavorful and spicy shrimp spaghetti aglio e olio - the result was delicious and efforts next to nothing .
Spaghetti cooked al dente- for two people.
15 Prawns- marinate in juice of 1 lemon** for 10 minutes with crushed red chilli flakes.*
1 heaped Teaspoon Minced Garlic.
Crushed Red Pepper Flakes to taste*
2-3 Tablespoons Chopped Basil.
Juice of 1 Lemon.*
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
1/2 Tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil To Drizzle ( optional )
Heat olive oil , lightly saute garlic till it sweats , shouldn't color , now add prawns and cook over high heat for 3-4 minutes till they change color . Add salt and chopped basil, toss in boiled spaghetti , lightly cook for under a minute for spaghetti to pick up flavors , turn off heat , drizzle some extra virgin olive oil if your are using - gives a great flavor , and serve from the pan to the plate !
