  8. Once the water is boiling add the tomatoes (previously scored) and cook them for 10 seconds or until you see the skin peeling away
  9. Take them from the water and place them onto an ice bath to shock them and to be able to peel them with ease

  12. Heat up a large pan, add the butter and once it starts foaming add the prawns, followed by the tomatoes and the peas
