I am a huge fan of seafood, especially prawns.  Although it has to be freshly cooked prawns.  None of this already cooked and reheated until it tastes of fishy rubber that some places serve up.  I’ve had that a few times from certain restaurants and it just tastes rank!  Seafood doesn’t take long to cook anyway so don’t know why they don’t spend the time cooking it from fresh and serving a tastier dish.  Anyway enough of my waffling and back to my recipe!  This Spicy Seafood Pasta dish is quick and easy to make plus it tastes ah-maze-ing.  The chilli gives off the right amount of heat and you get the lovely sweet and peppery taste from the fresh basil.

If you are following the Slimming World diet then this is Syn Free by using Frylight or spray oil.  If you are not following the diet feel free to replace the spray oil with olive oil.

I added some chopped parsley before serving.  Serve with a mixed salad on the side and if you fancy it a bottle glass or two of wine.
 
 

Possible Variations

Use different seafood – you could add mussels, cockles, clams or scallops to this dish.

Make it more/less spicy – adjust the chilli flakes according to your taste.

Change the pasta – I used gluten free linguine but other pasta shapes would work just as well.

Make it veggie – you could replace the seafood for some chargrilled aubergine, mushrooms, courgette and peppers.
