How To Make It

This summery dish will transport you to a bustling Spanish street, with aromas of smoky paprika, fennel, chorizo and prawns.

For the sauce, our chefs fry chorizo to give it some colour and release its flavours. They use the oil released by the chorizo to lightly fry some sliced garlic cloves until golden, before adding some diced onion and sweating it until soft. They then add smoked paprika, fennel seeds, a touch of chilli flakes, red wine vinegar, red wine and sherry (hic!), and allow all this to reduce. Chopped tomatoes, tomato puree and vegetable glace are added, before simmering for 10 minutes to allow the flavours to really develop. They then stir through some basil and parsley to add freshness and colour. Green-speckled lentils are added, giving it protein and body.

Finally, the dish is finished with king prawns, the cooked chorizo and piquillo peppers.

Great served with crusty bread.
