Linguine with prawns, truffle and salmon roe - Tue, 2nd Dec 2008
Printer Friendly Version

An actual GH original! Truffle, salmon roe, prawn - let's face it, it's a bit extravagant. Very yummy though, and dead easy to prepare. To dress it up even further, swap the prawns for Moreton Bay bugs, or even lobster tails. Serves about 6 as an entree, 4 as a main.

Egg pasta to serve 4 - I use linguine, but whatever floats your boat. 300gm raw prawns, peeled and de-veined. Leave the tails on for visual appeal.
50ml white truffle oil, with a little more to drizzle over at the end 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 tsp per serving of salmon roe, with 1 tbsp extra to stir through About 200ml sparkling white wine or Champagne
1 packet fresh rocket leaves, washed A handful of fresh chives, washed and chopped into 1" pieces
Salt, pepper, sugar. Goats cheese to crumble over (optional) - I suggest Meredith Dairy as a mild goats cheese
~300gm fresh shitake mushroms Dried basil, oregano, lemon juice

Bring a large pot of water to the boil for the pasta, and salt generously. In a large pan, heat some olive oil and fry the mushrooms with the herbs. Make sure you have all the ingredients on hand and ready to go before you continue. Add the pasta to the boiling water and stir thoroughly to prevent sticking. While the pasta is cooking, add the prawns to the hot pan and cook on one side for about 30 secs, or until very rare. Flip and do other side. (Overcooked prawns are like rubber, so try not to overcook them.) Add the truffle oil, dried herbs, bubbly and lemon juice, and season with salt, pepper and sugar. Add the garlic. By now the pasta should be about done - drain it and add it into the pan. Add the chives, rocket and extra salmon roe and stir through the pasta. Plate each with a tsp of salmon roe on top, and (if desired) crumble a little goats cheese over as well. Drizzle over a little more truffle oil and garnish with a couple of chives.

    Note from Lachie:
You know this one is a simple one because I tried it and it worked on my first attempt with little to no stress.

Incidentally, this recipe also works without the salmon roe if you don\\\'t feel like slapping down $30 for a tiny jar of the stuff. Mind you, with the roe it is a pretty impressive dish.
