Ingredients

  • 16

    slice(s)
    Prosciutto
    paper thin slices
  • 1
    kg
    Tomato
    very ripe, roughly chopped
  • 15
    whole
    Jalapeno Chillis
    preferably red, or 3 medium red chillies
  • 1
    whole
    Onion(s)
    large, peeled and chopped
  • 8
    clove(s)
    Garlic
    roasted in a 180 degree oven for ten minutes, then peeled while warm

    Brown Sugar
  • 100
    g
    Butter
    cold, chopped
  • 2
    tbsp
    Balsamic Vinegar

Directions

  • 1 To make the sauce, in a large saucepan soften the onion and chillies without browning, then add tomatoes, garlic, celery salt and sugar.
  • 2 Bring to the boil them simmer for about twenty minutes, until tomatoes are cooked and slightly reduced.
  • 3 To make a smoother sauce, press this mixture through a coarse sieve and return it to a clean saucepan (you lose the tomato skins and seeds this way).
  • 4 Wrap each prawn in a slice or half a slice of prosciutto and fry without oil on the flat grill until the prosciutto starts to crisp and the prawns are just cooked through- only a minute or two each side.
  • 5 Re-heat the sauce and add the balsamic vinegar. Remove from the heat and stir through the butter until it melts completely.
  • 6 Spoon plenty of the sauce on four plates and place four of the prawns on top.
