  • Return prawns to saucepan and add salt and pepper. Simmer for a minute.  Add in cooked spaghetti and basil leaves.

  1. Yummy!
    Somehow, it's hard to get fresh crunchy prawns here nowadays. A lot are farm reared nowadays and don't taste nice.

  2. I like to cook with Australian Green Banana Prawns and I find them quite nice.

  3. Over here in Malaysia, I look for prawns with bluish tinge tail. Crunchy and savory sweet.

  4. Veronica, this spaghetti with creamy garlic prawns looks very tasty. A fabulous close up shot!

  5. Hi Veronica/Minty,

    Tried your recipe. It was very tasty. This is my first time trying white wine with cream. Thank you for your easy to follow yummy recipe (Mr. Lee even enjoyed it and he doesn't like to eat cream). Will try another recipe soon.
