Kitchen Adventures: Prawn Linguine

Full Title: Prawn Linguine with Sicilian Shaved Fennel Salad. Fennel. Hrmph.

Ingredients: Rustic Bread, Garlic, Olive Oil, Dried Linguine, Red Chili, Anchovy Fillets, Cinnamon, Saffron, Prawns (shrimp!), Garlic, Passata, Lemon, Parmesan Cheese, Basil, Fennel, Celery HEART, Mint
I didn't retake the picture... but NO, we did not accidentally use celery root instead of celery heart! Thankfully Ian realized our mistake and we corrected it just in time. This meal made me come to the conclusion that I really don't like fennel. It's too much of a licorice flavor for me... and then put it as the base of a salad - meh. Ian loved it though. The linguine was fantastic. It has cinnamon in the sauce which made for a really interesting flavor. The bread crumbs stole the show. They are meant to add a little crunch to the pasta and they are so yummy. Super garlicky. So simple. 562 calories for a big of serving of the pasta and salad. 4 out of 5 high fives!
