That heading (minus the chorizo bit) could go on my gravestone.
When I go food shopping after a hard day slaving over spreadsheets and Powerpoint I have a habit of buying random things in the hope that I will think up something to do with them later on.
Combine this potentially irritating (not to say expensive) trait with a tendancy to enjoy ‘cooking with wine’ and the culinary creations that result can be interesting to say the least. However in this instance (with a random packet of chorizo to hand) everything went according to (the nonexistent) plan:
I found some prawns in the back of the freezer, grabbed a glass of Chardonnay and got busy:
- Cooking chorizo
- Uncooked prawns
- Tinned chopped tomatoes
- One big fresh tomato
- Various splashing items (I go for soy sauce and worcestershire sauce but don’t get splash happy)
- Rice to serve
Dead easy. First chop up the chorizo and fry gently to release all the fragrant fatty oils. Remove the chorizo from the pan and set aside.
Should be plenty of oil in the pan now; add the onion and garlic and cook until soft. Now add the tomatoes and put the chorizo back in the pan. Add the prawns and cook for a few mins:
Serve with rice. Quick and easy for when you just can’t stick the idea of pizza again:
