2. In the sauce pan add a drizzle of oil, butter, thyme, garlic and onion. Cook until soft but no colour, then add in the artichokes, prawns and baby spinach.

3. Reduce the wine by half, then add the cream and turn down the heat.

4. In the frying pan drizzle oil, Brill seasoned (skin down), hold in pan to stop curling and cook until the sides begin to go white (2 – 3mins roughly). Then flip and turn pan off, a squeeze of lemon and add the butter.

5. Place pasta in the cream sauce, and season to taste with lemon juice & salt.

Using a carving fork, twist the pasta to a oval ball, slide on to plate, sauce over top. Then brill on top skin side up, remaining Vino in glass!
