Post 211: Tomato Chilli Prawns

This is as it says on the tin really. More of a starter kind of meal, or a light bite. Really really simple to do, less than half an hour including the 20 minutes cooking time. So simple, I can't believe I've not blogged this before - might have something to do with not getting prawns in my VegBox.

  • 2 or 3 cloves of garlic chopped
  • 250gs prawns, preferably big ones
  • About 200gs cherry tomatoes, halved
  • Fresh chillies, chopped I like about 6 or so, but basically just enough to give a bit of heat (I've used dried here, which I left in for flavour, but then didn't eat as they're too hot  for even a chilli fan like myself)
  • Place everything in a flati-sh bowl, add a  glug of olive oil enough to coat, some salt and pepper. Stir.
  • In to the oven @  ~200c  for about 20 minutes, at which time everything should be sizzling nicely.
Serve with some crusty white bread, dipped in to all the lovely garlic-chilli-tomato-ey juices.
Wine suggestion to accompany this: Chilled Rose, Tavel (Tavel Rose fact sheet.)- is very good I'm told


  1. OOh lovely that looks good. What, no prawns in your vegbox?! Six chillies sound hot.

  2. Looks lovely, I love prawns.

  3. Six chillies is pretty lively; maybe I got a little over-excited.

    Thank you, for the nice comments as ever. X
