Pea & chilli prawn crostini

Nuvita Biscuits

Crushed peas are classic pie fare, but on crostini with parmesan, they’re pure Italian.

Preparation time:

Cooking time:


18 medium prawns, peeled leaving tails intact, deveined
2 small fresh red chillies, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 tbs olive oil
30cm French bread stick (baguette)
375g frozen peas
1 tbs chopped fresh mint
2 tbs shredded parmesan


Combine the prawns, chilli, garlic and 2 teaspoons of oil in a small bowl. Cover and place in the fridge for 1 hour to marinate.

Preheat oven to 180ÂșC. Cut the bread into 18 slices crossways. Place, in a single layer, on a large baking tray. Bake for 10 minutes or until crisp and light golden.

Meanwhile, cook the peas following packet directions. Drain. Return to pan. Use a stick blender to blend until a coarse puree forms. (Alternatively, process in a food processor.) Stir in the mint and parmesan. Season with salt and pepper.

Heat the remaining oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Cook prawns for 2 minutes each side or until they change colour.

Divide the pea mixture among the bread slices and top with the prawns.
