Recently, I had lunch with my colleague C and since I practice abstinence from meat every Friday in Lent, I had to choose among the seafood items in the menu. I zeroed in on the Tom Yum Seafood Pasta as I love anything with tom yum! I tell you, that was one of the best lunches that I've had this year and I just kept on raving about it after every bite. I loved it so much that I was so inspired to prepare my own version that same day. As you may have noticed, I do thing pretty fast.
Tom Yum Prawn Pasta
Here what you'll need:
- Spaghetti noodles, cook following the packaging
- Fresh prawns, de-shelled (but keep the tail) and deveined
- 1 pack All-purpose cream
- 1 cube Knorr Tom Yum
- Salt / Pepper / Basil Leaves, to taste
In 8 easy steps:
#4: Add in the Tom Yum cubes and mix well.
#6: Lower the fire and add in the cooked pasta noodles and coat it well with the cream.
#8: Season with salt, pepper and basil depending on your taste.
I love how the Tom Yum flavour has added more personality and punch to the cream sauce. It also lessens the umay (sated) feeling which is a pretty common effect of having too much creaminess. Instead of adding salt, I opted to sprinkle my pasta with grated cheese. You can also add in more garlic if you want it more garlicky too. One thing that I love about cooking is it gives you the flexibility to adjust the taste on how you want it.
Hope you all like this Tom Yum Prawn Pasta. Enjoy!
