Garlicky Prawns with Smashed Peas and Wasabi

A pack of prawns in the freezer is a goldmine for entertaining. Marinated and then quickly cooked, ours make a crowd pleasing canapé, served on a simple blitzed spread of peas and wasabi on top of toasted brioche.

Prep: 20 mins
Cook Time: 6 mins
Serves: 30


To make the brioche toasts, preheat the oven to 180C. Slice the brioche buns horizontally and cut each round into quarters.

Toast lightly in the oven for 5-8 minutes or until golden. Cool and store in an airtight container until ready to use.

To cook the prawns, mash the garlic with a little salt to a paste, add the olive oil and parsley and combine in a bowl with the prawns, then set aside to marinate for 30 minutes or until ready to cook.

Heat a little oil in a frying pan and fry the prawns for a few minutes on each side. Set aside to cool.

Roughly blitz the peas with the wasabi and olive oil in a food processor and season to taste with salt. Dollop a small amount of wasabi pea mixture on brioche piece and top with a prawn.
