greek meze

Prawn meze

Every so often I ghalish for Greek food and I found this incredibly rich meze dish with prawns, feta and tomato that is quite incredible. This is a starter portion for 3-4 people but can easily be doubled or tripled for a main course.

What you need
300g peeled prawns
1 small onion finely chopped
Pinch of chili flakes
½ teaspoon minced garlic
1 small chopped tomato
Salt and pepper
Palm of chopped parsley
100g crumbled feta
Olive oil
The process

In a pan on a medium heat, add a little olive oil. Add the garlic and onions and cook until the onions are soft. Add the chili flakes, stir and cook for a further 2-3 minutes.
Add the chopped tomato and if need be (some tomatoes have a lot more liquid) about 2 tablespoons of liquid like chicken stock or wine and simmer for 5 minutes.
Add the prawns and simmer for a further 2 minutes or so turning the praws until the flesh is white. Add the chopped parsley and stir.
Transfer to a small baking dish, crumble over the feta and place under the grill until the cheese has melted. Serve with warm crusty bread.
