Harissa Prawn Spaghetti

Updated: Mar 21

This fabulous pasta dish is proof that healthy food doesn’t have to be bland and boring. And it comes in at just under 500 calories per serving, so why not treat yourself. You can substitute gluten-free pasta, if desired, and it will taste – and look – just as good.

This amazing recipe is from my new book, Healthier, Happier, Tastier! Which is released on 14th April and available to pre-order now. Click here for the recipe.


SERVES 2 150g dried spaghetti

100g Tenderstem broccoli, sliced in half 1 tbsp olive oil 1 medium onion, finely sliced 1 medium red pepper, deseeded and finely sliced 2 garlic cloves, finely sliced 100g cherry tomatoes 1 tbsp harissa paste

200g raw king prawns 1⁄2 bunch fresh basil, torn Sea salt Freshly ground black pepper


1. Cook the spaghetti in salted boiling water, according to the packet instructions. Add the broccoli for the final 3 minutes. 2. While your spaghetti is cooking, heat the olive oil in a large non- stick frying pan and fry the onion and red pepper for 5 minutes, until softened. Add the garlic and cherry tomatoes and fry for a further 5 minutes, squeezing the tomatoes with a wooden spoon. 3. Stir the harissa paste through the sauce and then the prawns. The prawns are cooked as soon as they’re pink (about 2 minutes). Season everything with sea salt and black pepper. 4. Drain the pasta and broccoli and stir it through the sauce. Serve with fresh basil scattered over the top.
