Whisk together 50 ml oil, the garlic and lemon juice and season with salt and pepper. Set dressing aside.
To make zucchini noodles, using a mandolin or spiral vegetable cutter, slice the zucchini into fine strips and then julienne with a sharp knife. Pour dressing over noodles and toss to combine.
Meanwhile, heat a small frying pan with an extra teaspoon of olive oil and very quickly sauté the prawns so they are just translucent, a couple of minutes. Remove from the heat.
Toss the chilli, capers, parsley and rocket in a bowl. Add the dressed zucchini noodles and prawns and toss again. Serve immediately with fresh lemon wedges and Parmesan.
