Prawn linguine with Hunan Salted Chillies

A perfect example of East meets West. A classic pasta dish with zingy lime, peas and tomatoes, finished off with tangy heat from our Salted Chillies.

Ingredients (serves 2)

  • 160g of uncooked linguine or tagliatelle pasta

  • 12-16 prawns, big or small, we don't mind

  • Garden peas

  • A selection of 12 small tomatoes

  • 2 tbsp Hunan Salted Chillies

  • 1 lime

  • Olive oil

  • Butter


  1. Bring a pan of water to boil and add the pasta with a pinch of salt and let cook for 4-5 minutes. Get a frying pan nice and hot and add a drizzle of olive oil.

  2. Slice your tomatoes in half and add them to the pan, cook for 2 minutes. Then pop in your prawns and cook until pink on both sides.

  3. Add your peas and cook for a further 2 minutes.

  4. Once the pasta is done, drain keeping 1-2 tbsp of water.

  5. Chuck the drained pasta on top of the prawns and add a knob of butter, the pasta water, juice of 1 lime and 2 tbsp of Hunan Salted Chillies. Give it a good mix and serve it up!

When using Salted Chillies you shouldn't need to add any more salt, unless you're a salt fiend then go right ahead!
