Shrimp and Broccoli Spaghetti

15 Jun

On Tuesday night, I decided to prepare my own lunch to bring to office for the next day as I’ve need to go recording during lunch time. Another reason was that I wanted to use up the broccoli that I’ve bought on Sunday. After taking peep into the fridge, I discovered I had shrimp and tomato sauce too. So, shrimp and broccoli my lunch shall be! 😉

Here are the steps to making shrimp and tomato spaghetti.

Shrimp and Broccoli Spaghetti

Servings: 1

Ingredients

  • 4 to 5 shrimps
  • broccoli
  • tomato herbal sauce
  • about 50 g of spaghetti (for 1 person)
  • onion (used only half)
  • olive oil

Directions

  1. Boil the broccoli for 2-3 minutes. Then drain with a colander and rinse under cold water to refresh the vegetable.
  2. Cook the spaghetti. Bring a pot of water to a rolling boil and add salt. Next, add the spaghetti and stir for the first 2 minutes. Place the lid back to bring back to a boil. Then, remove the lid and cook for 9-11 minutes, stirring occasionally. Finally, drain the spaghetti.
  3. Heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add onion and fry until onion is soft.
  4. Add the tomato sauce and stir. Bring it to a boil and leave to simmer, uncovered, for 8-10 minutes.
  5. Add the prawns. Cover and leave to simmer for another 5-7 minutes.
  6. Pour the sauce over the spaghetti and add broccoli.
