Method

  1. Preheat the oven and grill. Brush the aubergine slices with 1 tbsp olive oil and grill for 4-5 minutes on each side, or until they begin to char. Remove from the grill and cut into 1cm pieces.
  2. Meanwhile, heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a saucepan and cook the onion and garlic for 4-5 minutes, or until soft. Add the chopped tomatoes, lemon juice and mixed herbs. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes, or until the sauce becomes a thicker consistency. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  3. Mix the aubergine, prawns, mozzarella and two-thirds of the parsley into the sauce. Spoon into an ovenproof dish and bake in the oven for 20 minutes, or until the sauce is bubbling.
  4. Meanwhile, prepare a vinaigrette for the salad. Mix 2 tbsp olive oil with the white wine vinegar and season to taste with salt and pepper.
  5. Toss the salad leaves and remaining parsley together with the dressing and serve alongside the baked prawns.
