Lady and the Tramp Valentine's Courgetti
13th Feb, 2014


  • 3 courgettes
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 2 shallots, finely sliced
  • 100g cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 handful sunflower seeds
  • ½ red chili, deseeded and finely chopped
  • 150g king prawns, de-shelled
  • 1 handful basil, roughly chopped
  • 1 pinch malden salt
  • 1 pinch cracked black pepper

Equipment required:

  • Julienne Peeler
  • Non-Stick Frying Pan

Using a Julienne Peeler, grate the courgette into long linguine. Once you reach the soft seedy part of the courgette, stop peeling. Set the courgette linguine aside.

Heat a little oil in a non-stick frying pan and add in the shallots; cook for 10 minutes until soft and translucent. Then add the tomatoes, sunflower seeds and chilli and cook for a further 5 minutes until the tomatoes have softened. Now add in the king prawns and cook until pink. This should take around 5 minutes. Finally add in the basil and courgette linguine and heat through. Season with Malden salt and cracked black pepper. Serve in a big sharing bowl.
