The Best Prawn Pasta Recipe

My Favourite Prawn Pasta!


This is a staple in my house. I originally discovered it thanks to my sister’s boyfriend who is an amazing cook. He sent me the recipe and I’ve been making it ever since. I’ve simplified it somewhat since he would recommend getting a wide variety of seafood from the fish markets and I only have the energy to Instacart frozen prawns (because #mumlife). I also love that all the ingredients in this recipe are staples in my fridge and pantry so I can usually make it at a moment’s notice if I’ve had a bad meal prepping week!

I love that you can also substitute the pasta for any type of pasta or even cauliflower rice. Sometimes I use gluten free pasta, sometimes fresh pasta, or whole wheat! And you could use any seafood of choice too.

I really hope you enjoy it! Please let me know how it turned out! xx
