CHEESY POLENTA AND DIRTY PRAWNS (Serves 4)
tasted, mix in the cheeses, butter and peppers. The polenta will lighten in colour and become lovely and shiny. Season with salt to taste and keep hot until ready to serve. 3. To make the dirty prawns: Place the prawns in a bowl with enough olive oil to coat them, add the crushed garlic and allow to marinate while you get everything else ready. This dish cooks fast so have everything prepped and organised before cooking. 4. Heat a frying pan over a medium heat with a slick of oil and fry the bacon until it is starting to crisp and the fat has rendered. Remove it from the pan with a slotted spoon and set aside. 5. In the same pan, melt the butter in the remaining bacon fat. Turn up the heat to high and add the prawns. You want to cook these hard and fast. When they begin to turn opaque, return the bacon to the pan along with the spring onions, salt, pepper and cayenne. 6. Check for seasoning and give it a generous squeeze of lemon juice before serving alongside the polenta.
