  1. For a milder prawn and potato dish, omit the ras el hanout and cayenne pepper and add 1 tbsp sweet paprika. Swap the wine for crème fraîche and use parsley instead of coriander.

  1. Really delicious quick meal, especially if you have new potatoes left over from day before. Ras el Hanout spice is not easy to find, but if you search on web you can find out how to make your own. Recipe says for 4, I think that would be 4 ‘small’ portions.
