Method

  1. Heat the oil in a frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add the chorizo and cook for 3 mins. Meanwhile, in another pan, boil the veg stock.

  2. Add the garlic and prawns to the frying pan and cook for 3-4 mins until the prawns just turn pink, stirring occasionally. Take off the heat and keep warm.

  3. Add the polenta to the stock and whisk vigorously for 1 min until thickened. Remove from the heat and whisk in the Parmesan and butter for 1 min more until melted. Season liberally.

  4. Serve the prawns and chorizo in their oils on top of the polenta, with the parsley scattered over the top.

Tasty, easy to make and a bit different. It's a good idea to have all your ingredients prepared and ready before you start cooking (like you would with a stir fry) because once you start to cook it all happens pretty quickly.

Good but definitely needs to be served with a fresh-tasting veggie side, a bit stodgy and a little bit too much of one strong flavour on it's own.
