This is one of my favourite ways to eat prawns, as you can have dinner served in less than 15 minutes.

|400 g||Angel hair pasta, (just adjust cooking time for other pasta varieties)|
|¼ cup||Olive oil|
|3||Garlic cloves, finely sliced|
|1||Red chilli, deseeded and sliced finely|
|500 g||Raw prawns, shelled meat, thowed|
|1 bunch||Fresh dill, chopped|
- Cook the pasta in a large saucepan of boiling, salted water for approximately 2 minutes or until al dente.
- Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a large frying pan. Add the garlic, lemon slices and chilli, and cook for 1-2 minutes over a gentle heat just to infuse the flavours.
- Increase the heat, add the prawns, and cook a further 3-5 minutes until the meat turns pink. Add dill and season well.
- Drain the pasta and toss with the prawns.
Tip: Add as much or little chilli as you like and stir through a few handfuls of baby spinach leaves to boost your iron intake. Angel hair pasta is like a super-fine spaghetti.
