Now there have been a WHOLE two days of sun in Manchester it is time to get the shorts and suncream out and eat yummy summery food. While this is an indulgent dish, it came to £3.20 in total, so not break the bank wild-woho!

Prawns, lemon, butter, garlic, chilli flakes, lecture, rocket, pointed red pepper, cherry tomatoes, mozzarella, olive oil, balsamic glaze, bread to serve

15 mins

Preheat oven to 190c. Start by slicing a pointed red pepper into strips and pop in the oven with a handful of tomatoes and a drizzle of oil. Next, slice the lettuce for the salad and place on a plate with the rocket. Heat a frying pan and melt a generous knob of butter, finely chop 2-3 garlic cloves and add to the melted butter, take care not to burn. After a few minutes (ensuring the garlic isn’t brown) add the prawns and a pinch of chilli flakes. Turn up the heat slightly and fry for a further 4-5 minutes until the butter is starting to brown, then add a squeeze of lemon. While the prawns are cooking add a few slices of mozzarella to the peppers in the oven. Once the mozzarella is soft add to the salad, and top with balsamic glaze, serve with some crusty bread, squeeze of lemon and a glass of wine. (Remember to mop up the sauce from the pan, thats where all the best bits are!)
