  • 3 tablespoons olive oil plus extra
  • 1 large onion chopped
  • 5 cloves garlic minced
  • 14 ounces king prawns 4 pieces chopped and the rest set aside
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1/2 cup red wine
  • 1 can 14.5oz of chopped tomatoes
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/2 teaspoon hot smoked paprika
  • Pinch of sugar
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • 12 ounces linguine pasta
  • 12 cherry tomatoes on the vine
  • 3 tablespoons butter


  1. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add the olive oil and sauté the onion for about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and continue cooking for another minute. Add the chopped shrimp and cook for another 3-4 minutes.
  2. Increase the heat to medium-high and stir in the tomato paste. Roast until fragrant while stirring frequently. Deglaze with the red wine and cook for 2-3 minutes or until it’s the consistency of a thick syrup before adding the chopped tomatoes. Stir in the bay leaf, paprika, sugar, salt and pepper and simmer for 15-20 minutes on low heat.
  3. Meanwhile, cook the linguine according to package directions. To roast the tomatoes, heat a frying pan over high heat and add a very small amount of olive oil. Add the tomatoes and cook for 2 minutes on each side. Remove from the pan and add a bit more oil. Add the whole shrimp you set aside and cook about 3 minutes on each side or until done on the inside and browned on the outside. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Add the tomatoes back to the pan, remove from the heat and set aside until ready to serve.
  4. To assemble, stir the butter into the finished sauce. Toss with the linguine and divide between four plates. Top with the tomatoes and the shrimp.


Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
