Using the very freshest of ingredients, this crayfish spaghetti served with the salty, sharp flavour of parmesan, makes for a sophisticated yet super simple dish.
If crayfish isn’t available, large banana prawns make a great alternative. I love to serve this dish for friends as a relaxed lunch, with a glass or two of wine.
