  • 24 large raw prawns
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 200g (7oz) shallots, finely chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 3 tablespoons fresh thyme or 1 and a half tablespoons of dried thyme
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 cinnamon stick or half teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 800g (28oz) ripe tomatoes, skinned, deseeded and chopped
  • salt and pepper
  • 250g (9oz) feta cheese, crumbled
  • 1 bunch of spring onions, finely shredded
  • half a teaspoon aniseed
  • 2 teaspoons cold-pressed flaxseed oil (optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4. Wash the prawns and pat dry.

  2. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a saute pan over a low heat, add the shallots and cook for 5 minutes or until soft. Add 1 crushed garlic clove, together with two-thirds of the thyme, the bay leaves and cinnamon. Add the tomatoes, stir briefly, then cover and simmer for 5-10 minutes, to allow the flavours to blend. Season to taste.

  3. Transfer the tomato sauce to a large, shallow ovenproof dish. Sprinkle over the crumbled feta cheese and place in the oven for about 5 minutes.

  4. Meanwhile, heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large frying pan. AAdd the spring onions, the remaining garlic and thyme, and saute for 1-2 minutes. Add the prawns and aniseed and cook, turning frequently, for a couple of minutes. As soon as the prawns are opaque, add them to the dish with the tomatoes and feta and cook in the oven for a further 10 minutes so the flavours can develop fully.

  5. Drizzle the remaining tablespoon of olive oil over the top, together with the flaxseed oil, if using. Leave to cool slightly before serving.
