For a taste of New Orleans, serve these tasty prawns at your next party. Medium sized prawns are best, as they absorb more of the sauce to give you flavour with every bite. Don't be afraid to add a few extra vegetables with the sauté step; and try serving with a sprinkle of fresh parsley.

  • 340g uncooked spaghetti
  • 250g butter
  • 1 tablespoon Cajun-style seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon teriyaki sauce
  • 700g fresh prawns, shelled and deveined without tails
  • 1/4 cup (20g) Parmesan cheese
