  • 4 cups (1L) salt-reduced chicken stock
  • 400g tomato passata

Method

STEP 1 

Preheat oven to 200°C. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Heat half the oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion, bacon and crushed garlic. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 mins or until onion softens and the bacon is golden brown.

STEP 2 

Increase heat to high. Add the sherry, if using, and cook, stirring, for 2-3 mins or until liquid reduces. Add the paprika and potato and cook, stirring constantly, for 1 min or until well combined.

STEP 3 

Add stock, passata and 1/4 cup (60ml) water to the pan and bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low. Cover and cook for 8 mins or until the potatoes are tender.

STEP 4 

Meanwhile, lightly spray both sides of baguette slices with olive oil spray. Arrange over lined tray. Bake for 5 mins or until golden. Rub both sides of the bread with cut side of the extra garlic. Drizzle with some of the Tabasco.

STEP 5 

Heat the remaining oil in a large frying pan over high heat. Season. Add prawns and cook, stirring occasionally, for 2 mins or until prawns curl and are cooked through. Stir in half the parsley.

STEP 6 

Divide soup among serving bowls. Top with the prawns. Sprinkle with the remaining parsley. Serve with chilli toast.
