  • 100g dry linguine
  • 1tbsp unsalted butter
  • 14 raw peeled tiger prawns
  • 200ml double cream
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • 2 x Boursin Garlic & Herbs Portions 100g smoked salmon (cut into strips) Salt & pepper to season
  • Freshly grated Parmesan to serve Rocket leaf or micro herbs to garnish


1 Bring a pan of lightly salted water to the boil, add the linguine and cook for 10-12 minutes, until just cooked.

2 While the pasta is cooking, add the butter to a medium frying pan, followed by the prawns, cream and lemon juice. Finally, stir in the garlic and herb cheese until it has dissolved and the prawns are cooked.

3 Once the pasta is cooked, remove from the pan with a pair of tongs and add to the frying pan.

4 Stir together and then add the smoked salmon, stir together and season with salt and pepper. If the sauce becomes too thick, add a little of the pasta water.

5 Remove from the heat and serve immediately into two bowls. Finish with some freshly grated Parmesan and micro herbs or rocket leaves.
