King Prawns with Italian Herb Crust

Prawns go really well with Italian Herbs, and the addition of the breadcrumbs adds a great texture to this dish. Serve with a simple flavoured orzo, or use the pasta of your choice.

PREP TIME: 10 min
COOK TIME: 20 min


  • 200g King Prawns
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 20g Panko breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 tsp Italian Herbs
  • 130g orzo (or pasta of your choice)
  • 6 cherry tomatoes
  • 1/2 lemon
  • a handful of chopped parsley


      1. Prepare the prawns by removing the legs and de-veining, but leave the tails on
      2. In a bowl combine the breadcrumbs with the Italian Herbs and a pinch of salt
      3. Rub the prawns in olive oil and then add them to the breadcrumbs and mix to get a good coating
      4. Cook the orzo (or pasta) for 10-12 minutes, and drain
      5. Add a small amount of olive oil to a frying pan, and heat to a medium high heat. Add the prawns and cook for a couple of minutes on each side
      6. Add the halved cherry tomatoes to the pan that you cooked the orzo in and cook over a high heat for 1 minute until the tomatoes just start to sweat. Add the drained orzo, the juice of half a lemon and the chopped parsley and stir to combine
      7. Serve the prawns with the orzo

        Perfect for the festive cold months, irresistible when warm and gooey, but even better after a few days later when they get to their optimum texture - If they last that long!
