Serves 2 Prep: 5 min Cook: 11 min

Ingredients

Tinned baby eel surimi 1
Olive oil 2 tbsp
Onion 1/4
Pancetta or bacon 50g
Dried chilli 1
Cherry tomatoes 8-10
Garlic 1 clove
Cooked prawns 16-20
Spaghetti 240g

Method

1
This is the tinned surimi. I thought it was tinned baby eel, but it turned out to be surimi shaped like it.
2
Start cooking the pasta. Add 10-15g salt per 1 litre water.
3
Put the olive oil, smashed garlic and chopped pancetta in a frying pan on medium heat.
4
When the garlic browns, add the chopped onions. Remove the garlic when the onions have browned.
5
Deseed the dried chilli and crumble into flakes. Add to the pan together with the surimi and tomatoes.
6
Add two ladles of pasta water.
7
If the sauce reduces too much, add more pasta water. Just before the pasta is cooked, add the prawns.
8
Add the cooked drained pasta and mix well with the sauce for 1 minute before serving.

Tips & Note

●Mixing the sauce with the pasta at Step 8 makes the sauce white - it's nicely emulsified and ready to eat, this is an important step
