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.

With a few tweaks this turned out be a fantastic recipe.

I substituted the water for chicken stock, seasoned lightly and finished it off with a few glugs of habanero hot sauce. Suberb ;-)

This didnt meet my expectations. I used the oven method and followed precisely with the exception of adding saffron for flavour. The meal was bland and not at all enjoyable. The rice took longer to cook than described and i would not recommend using long grain rice, but grabbing a bag of Paella rice from Tesco. I added a little lemon juice to finished meal which improved the flavour slightly. I would recommend not using this recipe but trying the easy prawn and chicken paella recipe on the M&S site - now that is delicious with similar ingredients.

Very quick and easy to make and absoutely delicious. I have used cooked prawns added at the end instead any time I have made it and I also add a vegetable stock cube to the water. Also made it with microwavable 'express' basmati rice on one occasion when I was in a real hurry and it turned out great.

Really lovely recipe and very simple to make - went down very well with dinner guests, however I would add plenty of seasoning next time as without salt it was a little bland.

I was quiet disappointed, it was fresh but devoid of flavour

Tried this for the first time last night - it took longer than stated and I used 2 veg cubes to add to the taste. The end result was extremely good and there's loads left over for tonight.

Really loved this dish, used water but would use chicken stock next time. Added a little smoked paprika, white wine and just a few chopped red jalapenos. Yum!

This was quite tasty. I can see how people said it was bland if they didn't adjust the recipe. I added 500ml of chicken stock rather than water, 1 red chilli and some paprika. Not a party pleaser but definitely worth knocking out on a week night... cheap and easy.

I made this last night and was impressed. I made it on the hob and will definitely make again although I will take the advice of other posts and use chicken stock and perhaps paprika or chilli just to give it a kick, but it's a new midweek favourite to be served with garlic bread and vino!

Made this recipe using the oven version, easy to make, I added two chicken breasts and king prawns as they were the only uncooked prawns I could get. I agree it was a little bland, next time I would finely chop the onion, add more chorizo and use a stock cube.

Really tasty although the chorizo made it quite salty. Was definitely a hit and we will be having it again!

Cooked this meal tonight, but added chicken stock cube and saffron strands to the water and also some smoked paprika and it was absolutely delicious - will definitely be making this again! Very easy to prepare and cook as well.

This is a brilliant recipe. I did (as suggested by some of the adobe people) add chicken stock, 75 gm of chorizo instead of 50 gm. I also put in chilli flakes since I like spicy food. Other than that, it came out brilliant!

Really simple yummy recipe to through together. Left out the chorizo and replaced with black olives (dont eat meat). Also added small amount of chilli powder to give it a little kick.

Made this in the oven... you have to make sure the rice is totally covered with liquid... my dish was slightly too small and some of the rice didn't cook properly.

Would definitely make again!!

Really tasty simple supper, will definately be a recipe I use again and again.
I added a few dried chilli flakes, dried herbs and stock instead of water.
