Roast Harissa prawns with flat bread and mint yoghurt

Freshly made harissa paste adds a burst of flavour to these filled prawn flatbreads.  The citrus mint yoghurt completes the flavour combination.  You can also replace the prawns with cubes of freshly cooked white fish instead.

Harissa
1 large red capsicum
2 garlic cloves
6 small red chilli (or 2 large)
Lupi Extra Virgin Olive oil
¼ tsp caraway seeds
¼ tsp coriander seeds
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 lemon
Method:
1. Blacken the pepper on a gas ring or in a hot oven, then place in a bowl and cover with Glad wrap to steam which will help release the skin. Peel capsicum and place in a blender with the garlic, chilli and a good splash of olive oil.
