Saffron Spaghetti with Santa Barbara Spot Prawns
Spot prawns are incredibly sweet, with plump, tender tails reminscent of lobster. Be sure to remove the prawns from the pan before finishing the sauce to keep them from overcooking.
Spot prawn season runs from February through October. Spot prawns are available online from catalinaop.com or from your local fishmonger. If unavailable, substitute jumbo sweet white shrimp from the Gulf Coast.
Bright, minerally Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnay.
