Peel off the skin and head of prawns, leaving the tail on.
Gently open the Kadayif pastry, adding liquefied butter and run your fingers through the dough.
Wrap the pastry around the prawns starting from the top to the bottom (make sure there is only one layer to ensure even cooking of the prawns).
Place prawns in baking tray and into a preheated oven. Cook 8-10 minutes at 210 degrees in a conventional oven until pastry is golden brown.
Finely chop shallots, parsley and garlic.
Mix walnuts, day old bread, shallots, parsley and garlic with a hand blender.
Add olive oil, tahini, lemon juice and spices. Serve under the prawns.
