Baked Potatoes and Prawns

Today our very own Herminia Fortuny gives us another great recipe – this time with potatoes and prawns.  This is a traditional and simple recipe to make which we are going to try today on the Discovery Menorca blog.


  • 3 medium potatoes per person
  • 6 or 8 (depending on size) prawns per person
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Garlic and parsley
  • Fine breadcrumbs

Tip! If the potatoes are white, they are softer. If they are red they are more crisp.


  1. Cut the potatoes into thin slices with a mandolin (or with a sharp knife)
  2. In a baking tray put a little olive oil and cover the entire tray with the potatoes.
  3. Season with salt and pepper and cover with a thin layer of breadcrumbs, minced garlic and parsley and sprinkle a little olive oil on top.
  4. Put in the oven at 200 degrees for about 30 minutes.
  5. Cover the potatoes with the prawns first removing their whiskers and making a cut at the base of the head.
  6. Finally sprinkle with salt, garlic and parsley and a little more virgin olive oil on the prawns.
  7. Return to the oven for about ten more minutes.  Serve immediately. Delicious!
