Baked Prawns with Lemon and Feta

Love the flavours that come out of this quick & simple one dish prawn recipe which involves throwing everything together and baking for 15 minutes. It's worth grabbing some fresh crusty bread to mop up all the juices.

Ingredients
serves 2
takes 5 minutes to prepare, 15 minutes to cook
  • 200 grams (or block) firm feta cheese, broken into big chunks
  • 24 large raw peeled prawns, tails off
  • 6-8 medium vine tomatoes, roughly chopped, keep any juice, pips etc & add as well
  • zest and juice 1 large lemon
  • 1-2 cloves garlic, crushed/minced
  • pinch chilli flakes
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano or handful or fresh herbs such as oregano, parsley and thyme
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • sea salt and freshly ground pepper
  • To serve: 2 tbsp chopped flat-leaf parsley; crusty bread
Method
  1. Preheat the oven to 200˚C (180 fan bake)
  2. Place all the ingredients into a lightly oiled baking dish. I just throw everything in finishing with the olive oil, no need to stir through.
  3. Top with a grind of black pepper & sea salt and bake for 15 minutes or until the prawns are just cooked through.
  4. Scatter with parsley and serve hot with plenty of crusty bread for mopping up the juices. Enjoy!
