To make the spinach and courgette crispy pancakes

  1. Place the grated courgette between sheets of absorbent kitchen roll and press to remove any excess moisture.
  2. In a large bowl combine the courgette, spinach, mint, eggs, Parmesan, chia seeds, salt and pepper and allow to stand for 25-30 minutes.
  3. Heat an 8 inch (20cm) frying pan over a medium/low heat. Add a little oil and about 75g mixture or a large ladleful. Spread the mixture to cover the base of the pan.
  4. Cook for 6-8 mins each side until golden. Remove from the pan and place on a sheet of baking parchment. Repeat with the remaining mixture, adding more oil if necessary, to make 4 pancakes.

To make the pickled red onions

  1. Place the onion, vinegar, salt and pepper in a ceramic bowl and allow to stand for 20 minutes.
  2. While the onions are pickling make the tzatziki. Place the grated cucumber between absorbent kitchen roll and press to remove any excess moisture. Transfer to a glass or ceramic bowl and add the yoghurt, pepper & dill and mix to combine.
  3. Divide the pancakes between serving plates and spread with the tzatziki. Top with watercress, prawns and pickled onions and cracked black pepper
