Fancy some healthy baked scampi? "Scampi is traditionally made with langoustines, but today they are super expensive, so good old raw king prawns will take their place," says chef Chris Bavins.

"The little bit of coconut adds a bit of natural sweetness and interest to the scampi, but if you are not a fan, you can always leave it out."
