3. Add the parsley and oregano to the pan and cook for a further 1 minute.
4. Add the garlic and cook for 30 seconds.
5. Add the Mutti Polpa and peppercorns and cook for 5 minutes.

7. Add the prawns to the pan, spread out in a single layer. Cook for 2 minutes. Turn the prawns over. Add the feta to the pan. Cook for a further 2 minutes, or until the prawns have cooked through and the feta has just started to melt.
