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.

A simple saute of prawns with loads of parsley and garlic for flavour, finished with lemon juice and white wine. Lovely served over pasta or simply with grilled crusty bread. Enjoy!
