Spaghetti with Prawns and Breadcrumbs


I hope everyone who celebrates Thanksgiving had a wonderful time with your family and friends. I do not know the history of thanksgiving day, how did it actually come about and i do not celebrate thanksgiving but i do like the idea and concept of thanksgiving...very much..in all things, we give thanks. When we recognise and truly express gratitude, it makes us all feel good and immediate joy fills our heart. Here at this moment, i want to say thank you to all of you and i really appreciate all of you friends who constantly drop by to support and encourage me. I hope all of us will always be in gratitude, not only just to anyone but to ourselves too. Each day is a gift.. and i just want to, learn to appreciate the every moment of every day and remember all the love that created me and keeping me aliveeeee.


There are no exact measurements in this recipe, it's a simple one, you can throw in whatever you like, just that i added some breadcrumbs here for some crunchy texture. These are dry bread crumbs and it took almost immediately to fry them. Just pour some oil into your wok or pan, throw in the breadcrumbs and they sizzle immediately. Set aside. Cook the pasta , leave them aside. Pan fried some prawns with oil and garlic, put in some halved cherry tomatoes , coriander leaves, pour in around 1/8 cup or more of dry white wine and let them simmer for a while. Taste and you can add in some salt if you want. Return  the cooked pasta to the pan and toss them to combine. Lastly sprinkle the breadcrumbs and black pepper over the spaghetti.

  9. Wow, if you have some chilli in there, you call this "Bei Foong Tong Yee Fun", (Shelter Bay Spaghetti). Bei Foong Tong Chau Har/Hai is cooked in an almost similiar way.

  10. Yummy... this reminded me of a pasta dish Jamie Oliver did during his early days on The Naked Chef TV series, with the breadcrumbs and all... but your version is definitely more Asian with the prawns and up my alley. :D

  32. did you fry the breadcrumbs in bigger pieces then crush them into fine crumbs before you sprinkle them over the pasta? I like the texture it adds to the pasta.
