Easy Prawn and Courgette Linguine

Easy Prawn and Courgette Linguine

This easy prawn and courgette linguine dish would make a great midweek meal or weekend showstopper, and is really quick to make too!

Serves 4-5 people


  • 2 180g bags of frozen prawns (cooked and peeled)
  • 3 courgettes
  • 1 small red chilli (without seeds)
  • Handful of chopped parsley
  • Juice of ½ lemon
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • 500g Linguine
  • Salt and Pepper


  1. Slice courgettes in half before slicing them thinly into semi circles. Leave to the side before finely chopping the chilli and garlic too.
  2. Bring some salted water to the boil in a medium pan and add the linguine. Set a timer for around 10 minutes (or whatever it recommends on the packet).
  3. In a large frying pan, heat up the butter and oil before adding the courgette slices. Sautee until lightly browned before adding the chili and garlic – you don’t want the garlic to burn!
  4. With around 3 minutes left on the pasta, add in the cooked frozen prawns, and pan fry for 3-4 minutes adding more oil if needed. Make sure they are piping hot.
  5. Then, saving a little pasta water, drain the linguine. Add the pasta and a splash of pasta water to the pan and mix all the ingredients together.

Serve with a scattering of chopped parsley and a squeeze of lemon juice!
