About this recipe: This classic Greek prawn dish is baked with a tomato sauce and topped with feta cheese. Relatively quick and simple to make. This recipe goes wonderfully with rice pilaf and some crusty bread.


Serves: 8 

  • 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 75g chopped spring onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 350g chopped, peeled tomatoes
  • 125ml dry white wine
  • 4 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1kg large uncooked prawns, peeled
  • 100g crumbled feta cheese

Prep:30min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:45min 

  1. Heat oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Saute onion in oil until transparent. Stir in spring onions and garlic; cook, stirring frequently, for 2 more minutes. Stir in tomatoes, wine, most of the parsley, oregano, salt and pepper to taste. Cover, and simmer gently for 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 240 C / Gas 9.
  3. Spread half the sauce on the bottom of a large oven dish. Arrange prawns evenly over sauce, and pour the remaining sauce on top. Sprinkle with feta cheese.
  4. Cook in preheated oven for 10 to 15 minutes, until prawns are pink and the feta is melted and lightly browned. Sprinkle with remaining parsley, and serve immediately.
