About this recipe:I had used a marinade for Asian style fish regularly with rice, and got to the thinking the marinade would lend itself to prawns. Then one day I had no rice left so I used linguine and now I cook this every time with linguine!! It's a family fave now, a sweet, spicy, yummy dish and best of all it takes around half hour to prep, cook and serve. I snap my linguine in half before I cook, just makes it easier to eat. I serve with warm crusty bread and a nice glass of light fresh white wine, but that's optional!

Combine garlic, chilli and coriander with 1 tablespoon of the olive oil. Mix well and toss with prawns. Leave to marinade while preparing the remaining ingredients.
Place the linguine in a pan of boiling water and cook for around 8 minutes. Once the linguine is just cooked drain and place to one side.
Whilst you waiting for the linguine, in a bowl combine the vinegar, honey, soy sauce, and lime zest and juice, and stir well.
Now in a hot wok (or large deep frying pan), add the remaining olive oil. Once hot, add the prawns with the marinade and stir fry till the prawns go pink. Add the spring onions and stir fry for a minute more. Finally, add the vinegar-honey mixture and cook for about 3 minutes till the mixture is just bubbling. Add the linguine and toss well to combine.
Finally serve in a bowl with a wedge of lime and a sprinkle with chopped coriander.
You could add a little less chilli depending on your taste. I hope you enjoy this quick dish as much as my family does.
