Foodie Fridays: Soya & honey glazed prawns with spaghetti

I've hit a cooking rut these days, so we've been eating out more often.  Just the idea of having to waddle around the hot kitchen at 38 weeks plus makes me perspire!  However, I did manage to try a recipe out of a Simply Her magazine this week, and loved how quickly this meal could be prepared:

Soya and Honey Glazed Prawns with Spaghetti
(Adapted from a recipe from Simply Her, which initially included wasabi! 
 Serves 2 and a tiny tummy.)

300g spaghetti 
300g prawns (peeled and deveined)
4 tbsp honey
3 tsp light soya sauce
10 stalks spring onion (chopped)
2 tsp sesame seeds (lightly toasted)

1. Cook spaghetti in boiling salted water according to directions on package.  Drain and set aside.
2. Butterfly prawns by cutting them down in the middle (optional).  Cook prawns in boiling water (I was lazy and just used the water used to cook the spaghetti!).
3. Combine soya sauce and honey in a small pan, add 2 tbsp of water and simmer for 5 minutes over medium heat.
4. Toss prawns in sauce with spring onions and sesame seeds, and serve over spaghetti.  (I poured remaining sauce over the spaghetti.)

This was a really fast meal to prepare, and Junior J liked the sweetness of the sauce, while I liked the extra texture the sesame seeds provided.  Definitely a keeper for those days when you are rushing for time!
