  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook spaghetti in the boiling water, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, about 12 minutes. Drain.
  2. Heat olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Add prawns and garlic; saute until prawns are opaque, about 2 to 3 minutes. Reduce heat to low; add tequila and spinach. Cook until alcohol evaporates, about 3 minutes.
  3. Combine cream, chipotles in adobo, and salt in a blender; blend until smooth. Pour over prawns, stir, and simmer over low heat until everything is well heated (do not boil), about 3 minutes.
  4. Toss pasta in the sauce until well combined and serve immediately with freshly ground pepper and Parmesan cheese.


  • Cook's Note:
  • You can also use linguine or other pasta for this dish.
