    A delicious spicy king prawn dish bursting with flavour. High in protein and packed with chilli to boost your metabolism. Best served with white/brown rice or noodles.

    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.

    This is not your normal prawn cocktail! This recipe calls for lots of fresh coriander, cucumber, spring onions and chilli which gives the classic a Mexican flavour boost. It's a great colourful starter for a summer dinner party.

    I love dumplings and have come up with this recipe using all of my favourite ingredients. The dumplings consist of pork, prawns, watercress, water chestnuts, and are absolutely delicious! Great for a party.

    I have been working with various stuffing for filo parcels. This is by far the best I have come up with. This makes a delicious Christmas starter!

    Once they have been put together you can either fry them or steam them; both ways are delicious.

    King prawns and juicy scallops are cooked in a light white wine, fresh ginger, leek and butter sauce. A lovely dish for two. Serve with rice or with crusty bread.

    This crunchy appetiser is absolutely divine. Prawns are coated in desiccated coconut and baked to perfection. Serve with the dipping sauce of your choice.
