Overview

This dish, infused with heady Mediterranean flavour, is perfect served as a flavourful starter or light supper.  

Method

  • Preheat the oven to 200°C/ fan 180°C/ gas 5.
  • In a bowl, combine the softened butter with the chilli, garlic, smoked paprika and lemon zest. Place the prawns and chorizo in a single layer in a casserole dish. Evenly cover with the butter mixture.
  • Place in the pre-heated oven for 12 minutes, by which time the prawns should be cooked through and opaque (white) in colour, if not, pop them back in for another minute or two. While the prawns and chorizo are cooking, heat a griddle pan. Brush the bread with the olive oil. Once pan is hot, fry the bread for about 2 minutes on each side. Cut each slice of bread in half and transfer to two plates.
  • Take the prawns from the oven, sprinkle over with parsley and squeeze over the lemon juice.
  • To serve, place the prawn and chorizo mixture over the griddled bread on each plate and enjoy straight away.
