Harissa Prawns

Updated: Sep 11, 2020

Simple, but so delicious! Perfect for dinner parties as a main or a starter! Give them a go and I promise you won't be disappointed!


· 500g of prawns (peeled or unpeeled, I personally do a mix of both)

· 4 tablespoons of Harissa paste

· 5 Garlic cloves

· 2 knobs of butter

· 1 chilli

· ½ cup of coriander

· Tin of tomatoes

· Juice of 1 lemon

· 1tsp of cumin seeds

· 1tsp of turmeric

· ½ cup of white wine

· ½ onion

· 1 tsp of paprika


  1. In a blender or food processor, add the onion, paprika, harissa paste, garlic cloves, butter, chilli, tinned tomatoes, lemon juice, cumin seeds, turmeric, white wine and mix until a smooth sauce/paste has formed and season generously with salt and pepper.

  2. In a large frying pan, heat olive oil and add the prawns (which have also been seasoned with salt and pepper). Once the prawns have gained colour on each side, add the sauce and cook for 10 minutes until the sauce is hot and the prawns are cooked.

  3. Sprinkle some fresh coriander on top and serve with sliced French bread.
