Prawns (Garides) Saganaki
If you like seafood and/or prawns, then you'll love this dish! It can be served as a starter or a side dish and is actually quite filling. The recipe calls for ouzo and feta cheese, both delicious elements in any recipe! It is served in individual ceramic bowls and for the best effect can be placed in front of your guests piping hot! This recipe is for 4 of these bowls or servings.


800g prawns
100g grated onion
300g chopped fresh tomatoes
200g feta cheese
100g chopped green pepper
1 hot green chilli pepper chopped
100 ml olive oil
2 cloves grated garlic
1 teaspoon chopped parsley
50 ml ouzo
Salt and pepper


Remove the shell and the intestine from the prawns, leaving the head and tail, and cut in two.

Heat the olive oil in a frying pan and when it is hot, add the onion, garlic, green pepper and chilli pepper.

Fry for 2 minutes and then add the prawns and stir well.

Add the ouzo and continue cooking for another 2 minutes.

Add the tomatoes, parsley, salt and pepper and simmer for another 5 minutes.

Distribute the mixture evenly into 4 ceramic bowls.

Cut the feta cheese into small cubes and place on top of each bowl.

Place the bowls under the grill long enough for the feta to melt and colour slightly.

Serve the 4 individual portions hot, adding some chopped fresh parsley on top if you wish.

Eat and Enjoy!
