Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Jumbo Red Prawn, Chorizo & Saffron Risotto, Grape & Chicory Salad

Start cooking the chorizo

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a drizzle of olive oil over a medium-high heat.

Once hot, add the diced chorizo and cook for 4-5 minutes or until starting to crisp.

Meanwhile, peel and finely dice the brown onions.

Peel and finely chop (or grate) the garlic. Boil a kettle.

2 Jumbo Red Prawn, Chorizo & Saffron Risotto, Grape & Chicory Salad

Prepare your saffron stock 

Once the chorizo is starting to crisp, add the diced onion and chopped garlic and cook for 5-6 minutes further or until the onion has softened.

Meanwhile, dissolve the chicken stock cube[s] in 800ml [1.6L] boiled water, add the saffron and set aside to infuse – this is your saffron stock.

 

3 Jumbo Red Prawn, Chorizo & Saffron Risotto, Grape & Chicory Salad

Begin the risotto 

Once the onion has softened, add the Chinese rice wine and arborio rice and cook for 1 minute, stirring to coat the grains in the oil.

 

4  Jumbo Red Prawn, Chorizo & Saffron Risotto, Grape & Chicory Salad

Continue to cook your saffron risotto

Add 1/3 of the saffron stock and stir continuously with a wooden spoon until it has absorbed.

Continue to add the stock a little at a time, stirring continuously for 30-35 minutes or until the stock has been absorbed and the rice is cooked.

Tip: add a splash more boiled water if it's looking a little dry or the rice isn't quite cooked!

5 Jumbo Red Prawn, Chorizo & Saffron Risotto, Grape & Chicory Salad

Prepare the grape & chicory salad

Meanwhile, chop the grapes in half.

Separate the chicory leaves until you're just left with the core. Cut the core into quarters.

Combine the balsamic vinegar and 2 tbsp [4 tbsp] olive oil in a bowl. Add a pinch of salt and sugar and mix well until combined – this is your balsamic dressing.

6 Jumbo Red Prawn, Chorizo & Saffron Risotto, Grape & Chicory Salad

Finish your saffron risotto

Chop the parsley finely, including the stalks.

Chop the lemon[s] in half.

Once the rice is cooked, add a large knob of butter, most of the chopped parsley and the juice of 1/2 [1] lemon  this is your chorizo & saffron risotto.

7 Jumbo Red Prawn, Chorizo & Saffron Risotto, Grape & Chicory Salad

Cook the jumbo king prawns

Heat a separate frying pan (preferably non-stick) with a knob of butter and drizzle of olive oil over a high heat.

Pat the jumbo king prawns dry with kitchen roll.

Once hot, add the jumbo king prawns with a pinch of salt and pepper and cook for 3-4 minutes, turning frequently, or until cooked through.
