Easy Chorizo and King Prawn Paella

Easy Paella

This is not an authentic paella by any stretch of the imagination but it is very quick and easy and most importantly tastes absolutely amazing.

I've made a similar dish before, which I posted a few years ago but I've tweaked the recipe somewhat from the original version. It's now ram-packed with flavour and a squeeze of lemon juice at the end of cooking lifts it even further. A dish like this eaten on a cold, crisp January day really starts reminding me that the longer and warmer days of Spring and Summer are just around the corner...and they can't come soon enough. Roll on the clocks changing I say and surely we are due a hot one this year?!

What dishes do you turn to in the Winter to remind yourself of long hot summer days?

  3. I made this for dinner tonight - it was fabulous! Quick, easy and totally delicious - even my fussy 12-year-old loved it (once he'd picked out the prawns - no accounting for taste!). Just wanted to say thank you - I'll be making it next week too!
