Directions

Step 1

In a food processor place tomatoes. Add a pinch of coarse salt and purée. Strain the purée through a cheesecloth-lined sieve set over a stainless steel or glass bowl to collect the tomato water. Allow to drain a few hours or overnight in refrigerator.

Step 2

In a saucepan place strained tomato water and bring to a boil on medium-high heat. Reduce heat and adjust seasoning. Keep warm.

Step 3

In a non-stick frying pan, heat the vegetable oil over medium-high heat. Season prawns with salt and pepper. When the pan is hot, add the prawns and quickly sauté. Remove from heat and add butter.

Step 4

To serve place two prawns in the centre of each bowl with a little tomato concasse, ladle in warm soup and serve immediately.

Step 5

Optional:
For a deep rich colour and flavour, add a pinch of Saffron when heating the tomato water.
