Method

  1. Put the oil, shallots and a good grind of pepper in a large, cold frying pan. Place over a low heat and slowly cook for 10 mins, stirring regularly, until softened.
  2. Add the chorizo to the shallots, turn up the heat (but not too much) and colour a little. When the orange oil is released into the pan, add the tomatoes and a good pinch of salt. Stir over a medium heat – the tomatoes should literally melt in about 10 mins. If the sauce is not bubbling, turn up the heat a little. Add 100ml water and bring to the boil. Gently simmer for a few mins more.
  3. Meanwhile, cook the pasta. Add the prawns to the sauce, bring back to the boil and cook for 1 min until the prawns change colour. Drain the pasta and stir into the sauce with the spring onion whites. Cook and stir for 1 min. Serve sprinkled with the spring onion greens.

Lovely! I added some chipotle paste to spice it up even more. Think it needs more than 100ml of water too

Am I missing something here? The dinner was nice but nothing special, I think there are many other prawn and chorizo combinations that are far better on this site. Also what makes the prawns spiced??? It was a little plain for me, not to say I didnt eat it all and enjoy it but will stick to the spanish/paella prawn recipes for example instead.

Easy recipe to follow and the result is very impressive. Made this lots of times and replaced the prawns with chicken when I didn't have any prawns.

Really tasty tomato sauce, perfect summer pasta dish. Best with big juicy prawns and works best with really thinly sliced chorizo. Good Saturday night dish!
