This recipe for roasted tomatoes with prawns and feta is one of my favorite comfort meals. This dish is decedent and delicious, simple yet elegant. It's a great recipe to pull out for dinner guests or as a comforting meal for two.
Over the years, I've made this dish countless times and I always stick to the recipe because it's perfect. Just the way it is. Use the best quality prawns you can find or afford. Like anything, quality makes a huge difference.
