Great Recipe: Spot Prawns & Kilrenny Farm PastaWednesday, May 25th, 2011

Here’s a great recipe using Kilrenny Farm pasta & spot prawns

Saute 4 cloves of garlic (minced) until lightly golden in 1-2 tbsp olive oil.  Add 1/2 c. white wine, a couple of tbsp white wine vinegar and simmer until syrupy.  Whisk in 1 c. cream, juice of 1/2 lemon, 2 tsp lemon rind and add a couple of sprigs of fresh thyme.  Add 1 lb of spot prawn tails and cook briefly – no more than 2 min.  Serve over fresh fettucine pasta and sprinkle with fresh parsley.

Asparagus is in season right now.  Roasted asparagus is my absolute favourite! To prepare, just lay asparagus stalks in one layer on a cookie sheet, drizzle with a couple of tbsp olive oil, roll the asparagus around in the oil, sprinkle with coarse salt and bake at 400 degrees for 10-15 min.  Half way through cooking, turn the asparagus over.  The asparagus will brown a bit and caramelize and you will have a hit of intense asparagus flavour – wonderful!
