I've tried the force flash. I'll look for the white balance, or a setting so the flash is delayed briefly maybe.
So can you post a short write up on that bucatini shrimp and tomatoes thing?
funnily enough i've just got back from the bathroom having done the same thing.....man that chilli WAS hot
okey schmokey so:per person
a)100-125g/4-5oz buccatini(my fav),spag or linguine
b)chopped chilli of choice or dried flakes
c)finely sliced garlic as much/little as you like
d)basil-i like greek but any will do
e)smoked pancetta-i use british drycure from tesco-also use smoked bacon
f)few glugs of evoo
g)200grms/8ozs cherry toms-i like fresh but canned are fine
h)lotsa ground black pepper-i use malabar from costco
i)as many fresh prawns...ok ok pac SHRIMP as you like
j)small glass of dry white wine-i like muscadet
how i do it
1)cook your pasta,drain & stir in a bit of evoo to stop it sticking while you cook the other ingredients
2)in the same pan,on a high heat,heat the evoo and fry off the pancetta or bacon with the garlic,chilli & black pepper.don't let the garlic burn.
3)chuck in the toms & stir until they start to pop & the juices run
4)chuck in the shrimp & the wine & just as the shrimp have cooked:
5)tip the cooked pasta back in with shrimp/toms etc,stir to mix & re heat the pasta.....serve & enjoy!!
