I went to the market at lunch time today and left with a kilo of tiger prawns and a couple of baby fennel bulbs. Now what to cook with it.

I ended up going with Fricaseed Prawns with Leeks and Saffron from Moorish by Greg and Lucy Malouf (yes fennel is also an ingredient). First I had to make up a Ras al Hanout spice mix then peel and marinate the prawns in the spices. After that it was quite a quick cook. The recipe called for larger prawns than I had but we were happy with it. It was definitely moorish.

    It looks like parsley but coriander is more likely. What do we have sprinkled on top there?

    Early lunch today. You’ve made me feel hungry.

    You’ve passed the ingredient challenge, it is indeed parsley.

    Love the Ras al Hanout. We actually have a container of it ready to go in the spice cupboard. Very useful for those last minute meal decisions

  4. Hello Cam, Linc. It’s like old times here. 🙂
