Recipe for Grilled Prawns with Provencal Flavours

The Domaine Mirabeau is located just 15 miles from the Mediterranean Sea, which is home to some of the most incredible fish and seafood. Ben and Bea have discovered that bright and early every morning, without fail, five or six fishermen set up little stalls in the nearby port town of Sainte-Maxime, to sell their freshly caught fish and crustaceans to locals. Ben and Bea enjoy creating seafood dishes that also incorporate Provencal vegetables such as fennel and herbs from the domaine’s kitchen garden.

Course Appetizer
Cuisine French, Provencal
Servings 4 people


  • 1.1 lbs Raw Prawns
  • 1 1/3 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2 Garlic Cloves crushed
  • 1 small handful Flatleaf Parsley leaves picked off stems and roughly torn
  • ½ Lemon for juice only
  • 1 Fennel Bulb outside layer removed, sliced into quarters keeping the core intact


  • Season the fennel quarters with salt and olive oil. If you have access to a BBQ, char the fennel on the BBQ for a few minutes on each side. Or you can use a frying pan instead.
  • Roast the fennel in the oven with olive oil for 20 minutes or until al dente. Set aside.
  • Warm a frying pan over medium to high heat. Once the pan is warm, add 20ml olive oil, then add the prawns.
  • Cook evenly on each side, turning halfway through. The cooking should take around 3-5 minutes in total, depending on the size of the prawns.
  • Once the prawns have turned pink almost all over, add the garlic and toss continuously until the prawn are fully cooked, and the garlic is lightly golden.
  • Add a nice pinch of salt, lemon juice and parsley.
  • Remove from heat and serve immediately on a platter with the roasted fennel quarters.

Maison Mirabeau Wine

Maison Mirabeau Wine

Stephen had been in the corporate world for 15 years and in August 2008 turned down a promotion that would have meant more money but also more stress, longer hours and less time with his young family. For many years the Cronks had been dreaming and talking about moving to France to make their own wine, but the moment never seemed quite right to make the big leap.

Soon after, a good redundancy offer seemed the perfect opportunity to turn the dream into reality and after selling their beloved house, they left the leafy suburbs of south-west London in August 2009. Their worldly possessions were packed up on the back of a truck and with barely a word of French between them, the family headed south to a small village called Cotignac, in the heart of Provence.

The Cronks spent a year getting their bearings, learning to live the provençal way, as Stephen was criss-crossing the country researching and finding the best vineyards to work with. The next step was setting up a small wine business with the principle objective of making a Provence rosé that would be regarded as one of the very best from the region, while building a brand that people would grow to love. In order to achieve this aim, they put together a highly experienced winemaking team and threw their heart and soul into the brand and innovative communications with their customers. Mirabeau is now being sold in more than 30 markets, has won medals and earned acclaim from some of the world’s toughest wine critics, but what really makes Stephen happiest is that their wines are an integral part of people having a great time together.
