Instructions
  1. Heat 2 tbsp of the oil in a large pan over medium flame, add the bread crumbs and stir for a couple of minutes until golden. Scrape the crumbs into a bowl and set aside.
  2. Wipe out the pan and put it back onto the heat. Pour in the remaining oil and sauté the onion for 1 minute. Add the garlic and continue cooking for 5 minutes until soft. Add the brandy and ignite by tipping the pan so the flame catches it. Alternatively use a match or lighter. Once the flame has gone add the wine, tomato paste and purée, Vegeta and pepper.
  3. Bring to the boil then lay the scampi in the sauce. Cover with a lid and cook for 5 minutes, tuning over once to cook evenly.
  4. Gently stir through the bread crumbs and parsley, turn off heat and serve. Squeeze over fresh lemon juice, add more parsley and use bread to mop up the sauce.
