This is another beautiful recipe by our friend chef Peter Gordon. Personally prawns are right up there on my list of favourites and especially in summer they are a great choice for entertaining. Prawns (shrimp) and bacon make a great combination, especially if the bacon is smoked, slightly crisp when cooked and deliciously salty. Fresh, high-quality prawns (shrimp) are a little ‘crunchy’ in texture, rich and slightly sweet, and the two combined are terrific. Add grilled (broiled) banana (a childhood breakfast favourite of mine served with bacon) to the mix for the perfect casual brunch or supper pick-me-up!
