Step 1
Cook pasta in a large saucepan of lightly salted, boiling water. Return to the boil and cook for 10-12 minutes until just cooked. Drain pasta reserving 1/3 cup cooking water and return to the pan.

Step 2
Meanwhile, heat oil in a large frying pan, add garlic and lime zest and fry gently over a low heat for 2-3 minutes until the garlic is soft but not browned. Add prawns and season with salt and pepper, increase the heat and stir-fry for 3-4 minutes until cooked.
