Smokey prawns with coriander

This recipe is so delicious. The tomato sauce is has a great smokey flavour and is perfect for the cooling weather. It makes an inexpensive meal, and the sauce can be made ahead, as it freezes well – so make a big batch and add the prawns when you’re ready to eat it!

You can also substitute the prawns for chicken or tofu.
