Squid Ink Spaghetti & Shrimp

🐙Squid Ink Spaghetti with Shrimp.🎃

Spaghetti with shrimp or prawns is a really classic combination and whilst this recipe may look different it does not stray far from classic combinations.


1 Small Fennel Bulb

250g (9 oz) Prawns

1 Tbsp Cooking Oil

150g (2½ Cooked Cups) Squid Ink Spaghetti

1 Garlic Clove

1 Tsp Chili Flakes

1 Lemon

Salt to Taste


Bring a large pan of salted water to a rolling boil.

Slice the fennel bulb as finely as you can, a mandolin is the best tool for this.

Slice the garlic as finely as you can.

Zest the lemon.

Add the chilli flakes, half the lemon zest, the garlic and half of the olive oil to the prawns and season well with salt.

Add the pasta to the now boiling water and cook for 60 seconds less than the packet instructions.

Heat the remaining oil in a frying pan over a high heat.

Add the sliced fennel for 3-4 minutes tossing occasionally.

Add in the prawns and then sautee for 5-6 minutes for raw uncooked and 2-4 minutes for par boiled and defrosted prawns.

Drain the pasta reserving 2-4 tablespoons of the cooking liquid.

Toss the pasta through the prawns and add the remaining lemon zest and the juice of half of the lemon.
