A wonderfully creamy and lightly spiced soup. Cooked prawns are added to a curried cream soup base. Serve with fresh crusty bread. You can also use any other shellfish, such as lobster or crab.

Prawns are marinated in lemon, garlic and parsley for 30 minutes, then barbecued. Serve these succulent prawns as a starter or main. This marinade also works well with scallops.

This is a Greek recipe for prawn saganaki which is great as a starter or meze. It is a delicious dish that I'd only tried in restaurants, but when I tried to make it at home I found that I can make it just as well. Serve with nice crusty bread to mop up all the gorgeous sauce.
