Garlic & Chorizo Prawns

Every Spanish restaurant serves this dish of shrimp cloaked in garlic-infused olive oil with smoky hints of paprika and a touch of sweetness from sherry. Make sure you have all your ingredients together before you head to the stove since, start to finish, this cooks in mere minutes.


Active Time: 15 mins | Total Time: 45mins | Serves: 6


Ingredients

  • Thinly slice roughly 400g of Chorizo sausage
  • 125ml (1/2 cup) olive oil
  • 6 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2kg Argentinian prawns, peeled leaving tails intact
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh coriander
  • 1 tablespoon dry sherry
  • Lemon wedges, to serve

Short Instructions:

Step 1   

Heat a large non-stick frying pan over high heat. Add the chorizo and cook, stirring occasionally, for 4-5 minutes or until golden and crisp. Use a slotted spoon to transfer the chorizo to a plate lined with paper towel.

Step 2   

Reduce heat to low. Add the oil and garlic to the pan and cook, stirring, for 1 minute or until aromatic. Add the prawns and cook, stirring occasionally, for 4-5 minutes or until the prawn’s curl and change colour. Add the chorizo, coriander and sherry to the pan and stir to combine.

Step 3   

Divide the prawn mixture among serving bowls. Serve with lemon wedges.
