Garlicky King Prawns & Chorizo

Pass the crusty bread to mop up all that garlicky prawn and chorizo oil-infused deliciousness!! YESSSSS… so simple with just a few ingredients and totally bursting with flavour. You can’t go wrong with prawns and chorizo… such a winner with the family that the eldest who becomes a teenager next week (Eeeeek!!) has requested it for ‘one of his birthday dinner dishes!’  

I dry-fried the chorizo until golden and crisp, removed it, then sautéed the garlic and chilli in all the pan juices and olive oil.  To that, I added king prawns, fresh red chilli, dry sherry, coriander, lemon juice, a pinch of smoked paprika, sea salt, freshly ground black pepper, and more chilli flakes.  Then I added the chorizo back into the pan, heated through, and served to pipe hot with crusty bread to mop up all the garlicky oils… seriously, and I could eat this every day!
