|Prawn & Tomato Bruschetta : Serves 8 (Urban Graze 03/09)|
Hawkesbury River Prawns are a seasonal treat and absolutely delicious. You buy them freshly cooked and chilled from local butcher shops. We found some at South Windsor Butcher Shop on George St. Ring ahead to make sure they are in stock, 4577 6483. Small and sweet they are truly best just peeled and then eat them completely unadulterated, but if you must try to turn them into something else, this recipe is perfect. We love the heirloom tomatoes grown in Dural and using them makes such a difference. It is worth seeking them out.
Prawn Ingredients: Toss all ingredients together and set aside.
Roast Tomatoes Ingredients:
Preheat oven to 180ºC.
Cut tomatoes in half lengthwise.

Place a half of tomato on a slice of toasted sourdough bread.
Spoon on a few prawns and drizzle the bruschetta with olive oil.
Garnish with fresh herbs. Serve warm or cool with a chilled glass of rosé.
