Cook spaghetti according to package directions.

Pat the prawns dry. Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add half of the butter. Cook until butter starts to foam, and turns brown. About 2-3 minutes. Turn the heat to high and add prawns. Season with salt, pepper and smoked paprika. Cook until golden brown about 3 minutes on each side. Add the rest of the butter, olive oil and garlic. Cook for 2 minutes more.

Now stir in the lemon juice, honey, cayenne pepper and red pepper flakes. Garnish with parsley and add spaghetti. Taste and add more salt, pepper and chili flakes if needed. Serve immediately. Enjoy.
