Roasted Red Pepper & Prawn Spaghetti

Even though I'm not a fan of fish or seafood I'm a good wife and Mum and do occasionally make something a little fishy to satisfy their desires.

This meal is quick and easy, especially if you prepare the roasted pepper sauce beforehand.

Roasted Red Pepper & Prawn Spaghetti - serves 3/4

120g Red Peppers (I used seedless baby peppers & removed the stalk after roasting)
2 garlic cloves, unpeeled
1 red onion, peeled and cut into large pieces
1 tbsp Olive oil
1 tbsp Coriander paste
2 tbsp Extra Virgin olive oil
1 tbsp water
300g Fresh Spaghetti
240g Cooked & peeled King prawns

  • Place the peppers, garlic cloves and onion in a roasting pan & drizzle with the olive oil
  • Roast in a 200 C oven for 20-25 minutes
  • Squeeze the garlic from the skin and blend to a paste along with the peppers, onion, coriander paste, extra virgin olive oil and water

  •  Put a pan of water to boil for the spaghetti
  • When the water has come to a boil place the spaghetti in and boil for 4 minutes
  • In the meantime heat the sauce gently in a wok or shallow pan
  • Add the prawns and heat through
  • Stir in the drained pasta and coat with the sauce


You may wish to add chilli to the sauce, either in the form of fresh chillies which can be roasted along with the peppers, a chilli paste or chilli flakes.
