Prawns Saganaki

Saganaki, despite sounding vaguely Japanese, is a popular Greek dish, named after a sagani, the two-handled frying pan in which it is cooked and served. Traditionally made with grilled or fried cheese, sprinkled with lemon juice and eaten with bread. Prawns saganaki is a particularly popular version.
