makes 4 big servings


1 stick butter
4 green shallots, thinly sliced
4 teaspoons minced garlic
10 oz. Cherry tomatoes
3 tbsp sweet chilli sauce
4 shakes red pepper flakes
1 lb. Spaghetti pasta
1 lb.  Peeled, deveined, raw shrimp, tails removed
4 cups chicken stock
Extra virgin olive oil, to drizzle
Chopped fresh parsley leaves
Grated parmesan cheese, as needed


Step 1

Melt the butter in a large, heavy-based saucepan over medium heat until foaming. Add the shallot and garlic. Cook, stirring, for 2 minutes or until softened.

Step 2

Add the tomatoes, chicken stock, sweet chilli sauce and 1 cup water to the pan. Season with salt. Add the spaghetti and increase heat to high. Cook, stirring often so the pasta cooks evenly, for 12 minutes or until the pasta is al dente.

Step 3

Add shrimp to pan and use tongs to toss until combined. Cover and cook for 3 minutes or until prawns change color. Drizzle over oil and sprinkle with parsley. Season with pepper to serve.
