I bought a can of Prego tin can spaghetti sauce in tomyam flavour. I was expecting some zing and at least some tomyam fragrance. The spaghetti sauce turned out real bland and tasteless. So, I decided to give it a makeover and added my own ingredients.
First I boil half a packet of spaghetti in olive oil and salt. Then, I pour almost all the water away. After that, I dumped in huge prawns which I bought direct from the fishermen. I went to the fishing village in Teluk Kumbar and found some fishermen who just returned from sea. So, we bought a kilogramme of the freshest prawns from them.
When the prawns are cooked through, I added some of the ingredients like shown below :
These are green capsicum, enoki mushroom, abalone mushroom and mint leaves. Do not boil the mint leaves, just sprinkle on the spaghetti when it is ready to be served.
I wasn’t satisfied with the taste and added fresh lime juice, a bit of fish sauce and two tablespoon of real tomyam sauce to make this dish.
I do not like buying pre-made spaghetti sauce in bottles or cans because they normally do not taste nice. Usually, I prefer to buy the basic sauce and add more flavour like cheese or herbs to make those sauces palatable.
So, no more Prego by Campbell for me.
