  2. Take the pan off the heat, pour out any excess fat from the chorizo, then stir in the beaten eggs and milk with some seasoning. Stir in the prawns and peas and return to a low heat for 10-12 mins until all but the very top of the frittata is set. Flash it under the grill until golden (keep the handle away from the heat). Serve in wedges with a leafy salad.

Enjoyed and will try variations. I also like with frankfurters, or spring onion and capsicums.

Not bad, but not great. The combination of flavours didn't live up to my expectations. Some fresh herbs would help I'm sure as the overall flavour was rather bland, but I won't bother to make this again.

I didn't have any prawns so just made a Chorizo and Potato Frittata.
This worked very well.
I'll definitely make it again.

Just made this, used spring onion and added sliced new potatoes with the chorizo, and fresh mint with the egg. It was delicious, the chorizo really gave a fabulous savoury note. Have had to stop myself eating the other half!

Another quick & tasty recipe

Loved this - didn't have the right sized pan so ended up using more eggs and still not as deep as I would have liked but didn't affect the flavour. Had some cold which was good but not as good as when hot. Used ready chopped cooking chorizo from Sainsburys as I had some in the fridge - worked well.
