Units Scale
  • 150g linguine (see note 1)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 300g deshelled & deveined king prawns (see note 2)
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp plain/all-purpose flour
  • 60ml white wine (see note 3)
  • 125ml single or whipping cream
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 small handful of spinach, roughly chopped
  • few sprigs of parsley, roughly chopped


  1. Bring a large pan of heavily salted water to a boil and add the linguine. Set a timer for 2 minutes less than the cooking time. When draining reserve a cup of the pasta water. 
  2. While the linguine is cooking heat the oil in a large frying pan or skillet. Add the prawns and cook for around 2 minutes on each side until the flesh has turned opaque. 
  3. Add the garlic and cook for a further minute before scattering over the flour and cook for another minute. 
  4. Stir in the white wine and then add the cream and lemon juice and season to taste. Bring to a simmer and then add the spinach. Cook until thickened. 
  5. Stir in the linguine and a splash of the reserved pasta water. Stir together and cook for a further 2 minutes before stirring through the parsley and serving. 


  1. Linguine can be substituted with any kind of pasta you prefer.
  2. You can also use regular (freshwater) prawns.
  3. If you don’t cook with wine then you can substitute with stock or leave this out altogether. 
  4. For best results serve the pasta as soon as it is cooked. However, leftovers can be kept in the fridge for up to 3 days and reheated on the hob/stove or in the microwave. Note that the prawns will become tougher the more they are cooked/heated.
