Method
  • Whizz the tomatoes in a blender with the chilli and garlic to form a sauce.

  • Add the oil and the tomato purée to a large nonstick pan. Fry over a low heat for 3 mins or until darkened.

  • Add the blended sauce to the pan and simmer for 5 mins. Add the fish stock and honey and simmer gently for 10-15 mins until reduced by a third.

  • Meanwhile, heat a griddle pan on a high setting. Add the aubergine slices and fry for 1-2 mins on each side or until dark char lines appear. Cut into bite-size strips.

  • Bring a large pan of water to the boil. Add the penne pasta and set a timer for 2 mins shy of the cooking time on the pack instructions. Drain well.

  • Add the pasta to the pan of sauce; cook for 2 mins until al dente. Stir in the prawns and ½ the aubergine, then heat through for 1 min. Top with the remaining aubergine and sprinkle with black pepper and the parsley to serve.
