Simple ingredients

This came about because I needed a prawn dish without garlic, which would be the way I would normally cook these. This was a very quick, simple and colourful tapa.

Mise en place

  • Devein the prawns, cutting fairly deeply along the back so they butterfly a little as they cook.


  1. Add a dash of olive oil to a large heavy based and fry off the chorizo until they release their colourful oil.
  2. Add the prawns and cook them until they turn pink.
  3. Add the lime zest and juice.
  4. Tip in the brandy and shimmy the pan so the brandy catches and the alcohol burns off sprinkle with parsley and serve immediately.
