This is a beautiful way to cook yabbies. You can substitute prawns for the yabbies and it is still delicious.


Serves: 4 

  • 500g spiral pasta
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup ham, cut into matchsticks
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 3/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped green capsicum
  • 1/4 cup chopped spring onions
  • 1/4 cup chopped celery
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 1 tablespoon Cajun seasoning blend
  • 1/4 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
  • 2 cups thickened cream
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 500g peeled yabby tails
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

Preparation:25min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:45min 

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly-salted water to a rolling boil. Stir the pasta into the boiling water. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through but is still firm to the bite, about 8 minutes. Drain well in a colander set in the sink.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the ham and cook until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Stir in the garlic, onion, green capsicum, spring onion and celery. Cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the basil, thyme, Cajun seasoning and Tabasco sauce; cook 1 minute.
  3. Pour in the cream and bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and stir in the Parmesan cheese. Cook and stir until the sauce begins to thicken slightly, about 3 minutes. Add the yabby tails and cook until hot, then toss with the pasta. Sprinkle with parsley to serve.
