Hailing from Trapani, this pesto is as bright and vibrant as its Southern Italian home. Almonds and tomatoes add sweetness to the sauce, which is best served with lemon for a truly Sicilian experience. Buon appetito!

1 Trapanese Pesto Linguine With King Prawns

Preheat the oven to 200°C/ 180°C (fan)/ 395°F/ Gas 6

Boil a kettle

Add the blanched almonds to a baking tray and put the tray in the oven for 4-5 min or until lightly toasted

Tip: Watch these like a hawk so you don't burn them!

2 Trapanese Pesto Linguine With King Prawns

Add the linguine to a pot of boiled water with a large pinch of salt and bring to the boil over a high heat

Cook the linguine for 8-10 min or until cooked with a slight bite

Once done, drain the linguine and reserve a cup of the starchy pasta water

3 Trapanese Pesto Linguine With King Prawns

While the linguine is cooking, chop the tomatoes into wedges

Peel and roughly chop the garlic

Pick the small leaves from the basil and set aside for garnish

Chop the remaining basil roughly, including the stalks

Cut the lemon[s] into quarters

4 Trapanese Pesto Linguine With King Prawns

Add the tomato wedges, chopped garlicbasil and most of the toasted almonds (save some for garnish!) to a food processor with 50ml [100ml] olive oil and a generous pinch of salt

Add the juice of 1/4 [1/2] lemon and blitz until smooth – this is your Trapanese pesto

Tip: This sauce will season the whole dish, so taste it and add a pinch more salt if needed

5 Trapanese Pesto Linguine With King Prawns

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a drizzle of olive oil over a medium heat

Once hot, add the king prawns and cook for 3-4 min or until the prawns have turned pink and are cooked through

While the prawns are cooking, chop the remaining toasted almonds

6 Trapanese Pesto Linguine With King Prawns

Add the Trapanese pesto to the pan and cook for 1 min or until warmed through

7 Trapanese Pesto Linguine With King Prawns

Remove the pan from the heat, add the drained linguine and stir it all together – this is your Trapanese pesto linguine with king prawns

Tip: Add a splash of starchy cooking water if it's looking a little dry!
