Baked Stuffed Prawns

This is one of the recipes that has been provided by Shirley Cline from San Francisco in response to my quest for recipes using Balsamic Vinegar. (You can contact Shirley by emailing her - click here).

Shirley says: "I had these at a party and was given the recipe. Haven't made them myself yet but they were really good".


12 large prawns, peeled, tails left on
Salt and pepper
4 oz. cheddar cheese, cut into 1 1/4 x 1/4" pieces
2 oz. prosciutto, cut into 1 1/4 x 1/4" pieces
4 sheets of phyllo
Olive oil
1 cup heated cocktail sauce of your choice
Chopped parsley, for garnish

  • Preheat oven to 350°.
  • Butterfly the prawns by splitting them down the middle of their backs to open them up.
  • Season each prawn with salt and pepper.
  • Stuff each prawn with a piece of cheese and a piece of proscuitto and gently fold prawns around stuffing.
  • Roll up phyllo and, using a sharp knife, cut into 1/2" thick pieces. Carefully unfold the phyllo into long, thin strips.
  • Wrap each prawn in 6 - 8 strips of phyllo, transfer to a baking tray and drizzle with olive oil.
  • Bake for 12 minutes until crispy.

To serve:

  • Spread a little cocktail sauce on 4 plates, top each with 3 stuffed prawns and sprinkle with parsley.
