This rather dramatic looking salad is much simpler than it looks. Black rice, which is almost too good for you, is nutty, rich and delicious. It's also really easy to cook so it gets the thumbs up from us. It's tumbled with fresh rocket salad. King prawns in a spicy tomato and garlic sauce sit warm and happily atop.

Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Andalusian Prawns & Black Rice Salad

Boil a kettle

Add the black rice to a pot with plenty of boiled water and cook for 30 min or until tender with a slight bite 

Once cooked, drain and set aside

2 Andalusian Prawns & Black Rice Salad

Meanwhile, slice (don't chop!) the garlic finely 

Chop the cherry tomatoes in half

Cut the lemon[s] in half 

Chop the parsley finely, including the stalks, separating the stalks from the leaves 

3 Andalusian Prawns & Black Rice Salad

Squeeze 1 tbsp [2 tbsp] lemon juice into a large mixing bowl 

Combine with 2 tbsp [4 tbsp] olive oil and season with a generous pinch of salt and pepper then set aside - this is your lemon dressing 

Wash, dry and chop the rocket salad roughly 

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with 3-5 tbsp olive oil over a medium-low heat 

4 Andalusian Prawns & Black Rice Salad

Once hot, carefully add the sliced garlic and cook until very slightly golden then remove with a slotted spoon and set aside on some kitchen paper - these are your garlic crisps

Sprinkle your garlic crisps with salt and set aside until serving, keeping the pan and garlic oil for later!

 

5 Andalusian Prawns & Black Rice Salad

Wait until your black rice has already been cooking for 20 min before proceeding with this step!

Return the pan of garlic oil to a medium-high heat

Once hot, add the chopped cherry tomatoes and parsley stalks with a big pinch of salt and cook for 3-4 min or until they're beginning to burst

 

6 Andalusian Prawns & Black Rice Salad

Add the cayenne pepper (can't handle the heat? Go easy!) and king prawns and cook for 4-5 min or until the prawns have turned pink and are cooked through

Add 50ml [100ml] water and cook until the tomatoes and garlic oil form a thick sauce

Once thickened, season with a generous pinch of salt, stir through the remaining chopped parsley and remove from the heat

 

7 Andalusian Prawns & Black Rice Salad

Rinse the cooked black rice under cold water until cool

Shake off any excess water from the rice or dry on some kitchen paper, then toss the chopped rocket and black rice together in the bowl of lemon dressing - this is your black rice salad
