King Prawn Spaghetti


A n 'East meets West' straightforward one-dish meal  ~  Spaghetti cooked 'al dente', laced with King crustacean cooked in Asian oyster sauce with baby asparagus on the side.  This is a three-in-one dish of carbohydrates, protein, dietary fiber cum vitamins from the greens ~ asparagus.
Asparagus, low in saturated fat and very low in cholesterol comes from the edible stem of a plant.  It is also related to  onions, garlic and leeks.  Although there is a wide variety of asparagus, surprisingly, only a handful of them are edible and provide health benefits.  They can be harvested in three colours, mainly, white, purple and green.  Nutrients ...... yes, they are a good source of vitamin K, folate and vitamin C.
