Baking Tray


Bring on the Pepper and Croutons

a) Preheat your oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7.

b) Cut the pepper into 1cm thick strips. Put the pepper onto a baking tray. Drizzle with oil, season with salt and pepper, then toss to coat. When the oven is hot, roast on the top shelf until soft and slightly charred, 14-16 mins.

c) Meanwhile, tear the ciabatta into roughly 2cm chunks.

d) Pop the ciabatta onto a separate baking tray in a single layer. Drizzle with oil, season with salt and pepper and sprinkle over half the peri peri seasoning, then toss to coat well. Bake the spiced croutons on the middle shelf until golden, 8-10 mins, then remove from the oven and set aside.

Fry the Prawns

a) Meanwhile, drain the prawns. Heat a drizzle of oil in a large frying pan on medium-high heat.

b) Once hot, add the prawns. Season with salt and pepper and stir-fry for 4-5 mins.

c) Once cooked, add the remaining peri peri seasoning to the prawns and toss to coat, then remove the pan from the heat. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw prawns. They're cooked when pink on the outside and opaque in the middle.

Build your Salad

a) While the prawns fry, combine in a large bowl the balsamic vinegar, olive oil for the dressing and the sugar (see pantry for both amounts).

b) Halve the baby plum tomatoes.

c) Add the roasted pepper, croutons, tomatoes and rocket to the bowl of dressing. Crumble in three quarters of the Greek style cheese, then toss to coat everything in the dressing. 

d) Divide the dressed salad between 2 serving bowls and top with the Pil Pil Prawns.

e) Crumble over the remaining cheese to finish.
