Absolutely love this meal. A family favourite, always do a pot to go alongside a BBQ, so many people ask me for the recipe. Thank you!

Lovely! I've honed this after a few tries! First I fry the chorizo and pepper till well done then set aside and add with the prawns at the end because they go a bit yukky being boiled and you loose some of their delicious flavour. Plus I now leave out the celery. This makes loads so I half it and it plenty for 2 plus lunch the next day.

Loved this. First made it for a football World Cup evening and have made it lots of times sine. I left out the shrimp due to a fussy eater in the family, but we all loved it. Gert lush! Would recommend this to anyone.

Tasty recipe. I'm indian and can usually take it hot. I didn't deseed the chilli, with 1tsp each of paprika & cayenne pepper was very hot. Maybe I will deseed the chilli next time. Recommended - yummy.
