    Great recipe- messy and delicious. The sauce is beautiful, though I found that the breadcrumbs weren’t needed as it thickened whilst cooking.

    Now this feta, mentioned before, would be a nono in Croatia. You eat it with your hands and a bib around your neck. Crusty bread is served to dip into the rich cooking sauce.

    Add feta for a variation. Not pure but very delicious. Add just before serving.

    Lovely!. I had some large, raw Madagascan peeled prawns in the freezer and as soon as I saw Rick make this, I knew it would be on my list. Super messy to eat (might go for headless next time), but a total treat!
