Seafood Recipes

Prawn Saganaki
Serves 4

600g green (uncooked) prawns, tails off
1 large brown onion, diced
1 tablespoon dried oregano
1 small red chilli, deseeded, finely chopped
1 clove garlic (or equivalent minced garlic)
1 red capsicum, diced
4-5 lge tomatoes (I grate mine but this can be messy so you can dice them)
100g - 200g greek feta (depending on how much you luuuurve it)

In a very large frypan heat some olive oil until medium heat. Add onion, garlic, oregano and chilli, saute until onions are soft.
Add prawns and cook until starting to go opaque. Add capsicum and saute with prawns for approx 2 mins. Add tomatoes and simmer until prawns are done and tomatoes have cooked down, approx 5 mins.
Remove from heat and crumble feta into pan, stir through and serve!
mmmm works best with a crisp, chilled glass of sauvignon blanc and crusty bread to mop up the sauciness.
