If you like prawns, then you'll love this dish! It can be served as a starter or a side dish

Ingredients

800g prawns size 1

100g grated onion

300g chopped fresh tomatoes

200g feta cheese

100g chopped green pepper

1 hot green chilli pepper chopped

100 ml olive oil

2 cloves grated garlic

1 teaspoon chopped parsley

50 ml ouzo

Salt and pepper

Directions

Remove the shell and the intestine from the prawns, leaving the head and tail, and cut in two. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan and when it is hot, add the onion, garlic, green pepper and chilli pepper.

Fry for 2 minutes and then add the prawns and stir well. Add the ouzo and continue cooking for another 2 minutes. Add the tomatoes, parsley, salt and pepper and simmer for another 5 minutes.

Distribute the mixture evenly into 4 ceramic bowls – what we call saganaki bowls (see photo). Cut the feta cheese into small cubes and place on top of each bowl. Place the bowls under the grill long enough for the feta to melt and colour slightly. Serve the 4 individual portions hot, adding some chopped fresh parsley on top if you wish.
