Summer sipping…

We’ve found the perfect wine for warm weather sipping and alfresco dining  

The just released TOKARA Sauvignon Blanc 2020 is vibrant with an abundance of Cape gooseberries, green apples and passion fruit, and is exceptional with seafood. Especially Sam Linsell of Drizzle and Dip’s delicious prawn pasta with tomatoes, garlic and cream. Buy the wine for R95 at your local wine store or online at tokara.com, make the dish, and have a happy day!

PRAWN PASTA WITH TOMATOES, GARLIC & CREAM

You’ll need:  250g linguini or spaghetti, 1 Tbsp each olive oil and butter, 4 anchovy fillets, chopped, 300g prawn meat (after skinned, deveined and heads removed), 250g baby tomatoes halved, 3 cloves garlic, crushed, ½ red chilli finely chopped or ½ teaspoon dried chilli flakes, 6 sundried tomatoes in olive oil vinaigrette, blitzed in a small food processor or bashed up to a paste in a pestle and mortar, half a cup TOKARA Sauvignon Blanc,  1 Tbsp baby capers or chopped capers (optional); one third to half a cup cream, 2 Tbsp finely chopped parsley, a small handful wild rocket leaves, zest of half a lemon, salt & pepper

To make:  Get a large pot of salted water on the boil and cook your pasta according to the pack instructions and until al dente. Get the sauce going about 5 minutes into cooking the pasta. Heat a large non-stick frying and add the butter and olive oil. Once bubbling, add the anchovies and prawns and toss about until the prawns just start turning pink. Add the garlic and chilli and cook for about 30 seconds and until fragrant. Add the wine to deglaze the pan and allow most of the liquid to cook off. Then add the tomatoes, sundried tomatoes and cook for about two to three minutes. Add the cream and capers and allow this to thicken slightly. Drain the pasta and reserve some of the cooking liquid. Tip the pasta into the pan to finish off cooking with the sauce. Add some of the cooking liquid to loosen the pasta and toss in the chopped parsley, wild rocket and grated lemon zest. Season with salt and pepper and serve immediately in large bowls.
