Method

  1. Boil the kettle. In a non-stick frying or shallow pan with a lid, fry the onion, peppers, chorizo and garlic in the oil over a high heat for 3 mins. Stir in the rice and chopped tomatoes with 500ml boiling water, cover, then cook over a high heat for 12 mins.
  2. Uncover, then stir – the rice should be almost tender. Stir in the prawns, with a splash more water if the rice is looking dry, then cook for another min until the prawns are just pink and rice tender.

Quick and easy but really very bland - needs a little something but not sure what. Any suggestions? Used chicken stock instead of water but still pretty tasteless. I would fry off the chorizo before adding anything else to the pan next time as it looked a bit pale.

Enjoyed it, though would just spice it up a bit next time.

Love love love this dish. So easy and tasty. I'd happily serve it up for friends coming to dinner.

This has become a firm favourite with my family, especially with my 4 year old son who can't get enough prawns and chorizo!

This is great, all the family loved it and the left overs worked well for lunch the next day too. I added a bit of paprika though for extra flavour although I think it would be fine without.

Surprisingly quick and tasty, although pretty bland. Had to add chicken stock and loads of pepper, but still needed something. But will definitely experiment a little bit with that recipe!

After reading the previous comments on this recipe I decided to use stock and added a chilli as well. Absoutely loved it! Would recommend.

Tried this tonight as a quick and easy meal and it was delicious! After reading comments I used chicken stock instead of water and I felt it was really flavoursome. I am sure this will become a favourite, especially as only one pan needed!
Might try adding some chilli to it next time for spice.

I made this last weekend for my week and I have to say it was very easy and didn't take long at all! I used frozen seafood as I didn't have anything fresh around, adding some salt, a pinch of saffron, and a little more water than specified and it turned out great! I'll try it with a chicken stock next time but I like it as it was. A good speedy and filling supper!

Tried this for lunch and dinner today since it's a one-pot recipe. Wouldn't say it was mind-blowing but fairly tasty nevertheless. Used diced chicken thigh as didn't have prawns and also substituted with brown rice for a healthy twist. I reckon a splash of white wine and more chorizo would improve the recipe. But there goes the daily fat allowance.

Love this recipe, but I use risotto rice & white wine - partly following this recipe & also following the risotto cooking instructions on the box. Works wonderfully!

Superb, I only has 1 pepper so added a small red onion instead. I also made this with chicken stock instead of water, added a splash of soy sauce (perfect with chopped toms), a handfull of chopped mushrooms and a pinch of chilli flakes... try it! its goooooooooood

Quick and easy tasty weekday meal. I used vegetable stock cube with the water though and added a pinch of sugar to counter balance the tomatoes.

This was ok but I used a lot more chorizo and smoked paprika as I really like the Spanish taste, I probably wouldnt make this again with basmati rice just didnt seem right.

I also urge anyone thinking of using salami not to, yuk...salami and chorizo are worlds apart in terms of taste and this dish wont taste anything like what its meant to using this as a substitute.

I made this on the stove and it was delicious! I added a mix of paprika,black pepper,cayenne pepper and curry powder to get a nice spicy flavour. I used cooked prawns as well and just chucked them in at the end to heat through. I actually doubled the amount of chorizo because I thought there wasn't enough-and I love chorizo! :)
