1.Preheat oven to 160°C/140°C fan forced. Place bread, in a single layer, on a baking tray. Bake for 20 minutes or until light golden and crisp. Cool. Break bread into 2cm pieces.
2.To make dressing, use paper towels to pat oil from anchovies. Coarsely chop anchovies, reserving half for salad. Blend or process remaining anchovies, egg, ricotta, yogurt, juice, mustard and garlic for 1 minute or until smooth. Season with salt and pepper.
3.Heat oil in a small frying pan over moderate heat. Add bacon; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until lightly browned. Transfer to a heatproof bowl. Add prawns to pan; cook for 1 minute each side or until cooked.
4.Combine lettuce, parmesan, bread, bacon and reserved anchovies in a large bowl. Divide salad among serving plates. Serve topped with prawns. Drizzle with dressing and sprinkle with pepper.

You can use low-fat substitutes for the yogurt and ricotta, if you like.
