  • 100g long-stem broccoli, cut into thirds
  • 180g dried spaghetti
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large garlic clove, lightly bashed
  • 150g cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 150g raw king prawns
  • 1 heaped tbsp rose harissa paste
  • 1 lemon, finely zested


  1. Bring a pan of lightly salted water to the boil. Add the broccoli and boil for 1 min 30 secs, or until tender. Drain and set aside. Cook the pasta following pack instructions, then drain, reserving a ladleful of cooking water.

  2. Heat the oil in a large frying pan, add the garlic clove and fry over a low heat for 2 mins. Remove with a slotted spoon and discard, leaving the flavoured oil.

  3. Add the tomatoes to the pan and fry over a medium heat for 5 mins, or until beginning to soften and turn juicy. Stir through the prawns and cook for 2 mins, or until turning pink. Add the harissa and lemon zest, stirring to coat.

  4. Toss the cooked spaghetti and pasta water through the prawns and harissa, season to taste and serve.
