Heat olive oil in a
large saucepan.
Add the chopped bokkom, garlic, chillies and thyme leaves and
fry for a few seconds until fragrant – be careful not to let the garlic
Add the cooked spaghetti and toss the pan over high heat for a
couple minutes so that the pan juices coat the spaghetti and all the
ingredients are nicely mixed.
Squeeze over fresh lemon juice and stir
Add salt to taste (remember the bokkoms are quite salty already)
and some cracked black pepper.
