Cook’s Nook – Broccoli and Prawns in Garlic Pasta

Let’s take a break from baking and switched on to cooking. This recipe is originally from Kris TV. I find it so easy kaya I gave it a try and it was really a hit! They are all raving for it. In fact they are begging me to cook it again kasi nabitin daw sila.

I innovated the recipe by adding broccoli. This is really good and presents a different way to enjoy pasta! Perfectly suitable for seafood lovers.

What makes this dish special is the use of garlic-infused olive oil to bring out the flavors of your main ingredients: the seafood & pasta. 


Here’s the full recipe.


500 g. pasta ( fettucini, linguini or similar)
1/2 cup olive oil
one head of garlic, peeled
300 g. prawns, peeled and deveined
Juice and zest of one lemon
10 g basil
2 tbsp. butter
1 head of broccoli
A little salt to taste


1. Cook the pasta al dente, nine to 10 minutes. Set aside.

2. Proceed to make garlic-infused olive oil. In a small saucepan, combine olive oil and garlic cloves and make sure flame is set to very low so as not to scorch both the oil and garlic. Do this or 20 minutes, or more if you have time. The longer the garlic stays in oil at low flame, the more flavorful it will be.

3. Saute the broccoli and prawns in 1/4 cup garlic oil until it changes color, about one or two minutes. Add butter, lemon juice and zest then toss with pasta. Season with a little salt. Add more oil if needed.

4. Served with garlic bread.
