Prawns with sage and chorizo, marinating

When I prepared this recipe, the chorizo slices were too small to wrap around the prawns so as a result the photographs don't look all that appealing. Appearances can be deceptive. This dish was sublime. You would think that one whole sage leaf for each prawns would be too much. It was not, the spicy chorizo and the sweet prawns went perfectly with the herby sage. This is a winner!

You could also use large, thawed, frozen King prawns for this recipe.
