Baked Prawns with Lemon and Feta

This is the perfect dish to serve with lots of crusty bread for mopping up all the lovely garlicky, lemony juices.

Serves: 2


10 large raw, peeled prawns, tail on
2 medium vine tomatoes, roughly chopped
zest and juice 1 lemon
¼ cup olive oil
2 cloves garlic, crushed
pinch chilli flakes
1 teaspoon dried oregano, preferably Sicilian
sea salt and ground pepper
125 grams firm feta cheese, broken into large pieces

1 tablespoon chopped parsley


Preheat the oven to 200°C fan bake.

Toss the prawns with all the ingredients except the feta. Tip into a medium, shallow, ovenproof baking dish. Break the feta into large pieces and nestle into the dish. Spoon over some of the juices and a grind of pepper.

Bake for 15 minutes, until the prawns are just cooked. Scatter over the parsley.
