A tasteful prawns and chorizo Jambalaya with a few hidden secrets to unlock a flavoursome flavour, like no other. It's a fresh with a hint of spice and extremely fast and easy. This is something I made up when cooking, so there aren't really any restrictions or measurements, it's a 'fun' meal ti make and easy to play with
Prawns (I used pre cooked Tesco's own)
Chorizo (already chopped, Tesco again)
Salt & Pepper
Soy Sauce (Optional but adds flavour - around 1 TBLSP)
Tin of Tomatoes
Vegetable stocks (2)
Fresh lemon (to taste) (optional)
Some veg (I added small baby corns, broccoli 1 pepper, and green beans)
Olive oil for pan
Rice (Basmati, doesn't matter which brand)
BBQ Sticky Chicken (sachet from Tesco), or Cajun spice seasoning
Boil water, add rice (to amount of people eating), allow to cook.
Put oil in a pot and allow to heat (medium to hot), add chopped onions until soft, then add broccoli, baby corns, pepper, green beans, garlic and salt & pepper allow to cook for a while longer. Mean while begin chopping your chorizo.
Add a tin of tomatoes to the oil pot (with vegetables in), followed by your prawns, chopped chorizo and vegetable stock cubes. Continue cooking and stirring until it simmers, (around 5 minutes).
Check on your rice, if its fluffy (larger) and soft (taste it if you're not sure), drain it in a colander, put the colander in the pot the rice was boiled in and place a towel over the rice (this allows it to become softer and rise slightly)
Whilst allowing the rice to rise, add the fresh lemon, soy sauce and a BBQ sticky chicken (or cajun) seasoning - I bought this in a packed from Tesco. Mix thoroughly
