This golden bowlful is inspired by paella, but instead of rice you'll simmer orzo with red pepper, paprika and saffron-infused stock. Top with pan-fried parsley king prawns and a squeeze of lemon.

Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Prawn, Red Pepper & Saffron Orzo

Deseed the red pepper[s] (scrape the seeds and pith out with a teaspoon) and cut into thin strips (as finely as you can!)

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

Once hot, add the red pepper strips with a pinch of salt and cook for 5-6 min or until beginning to soften

2 Prawn, Red Pepper & Saffron Orzo

Meanwhile, boil a kettle

Peel and finely slice (don't chop!) the garlic

Dissolve 1/2 [1] Knorr vegetable stock cube in 500ml [900ml] boiled water and add the saffron – this is your saffron stock

3 Prawn, Red Pepper & Saffron Orzo

Once the pepper is beginning to soften, add the smoked paprika, sliced garlic and orzo pasta and cook for a further 1 min or until fragrant

Add the saffron stock, reduce the heat to medium-low and cook, covered, for 15 min or until all the water has absorbed and the orzo is cooked

Tip: Stir the orzo occasionally to stop it from sticking!

4 Prawn, Red Pepper & Saffron Orzo

While the orzo is cooking, chop the parsley finely, including the stalks

5 Prawn, Red Pepper & Saffron Orzo

Once the orzo is almost cooked, heat a separate, large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a drizzle of olive oil over a medium heat

Once hot, add the king prawns and cook for 4-5 min or until cooked through

6 Prawn, Red Pepper & Saffron Orzo

Season the orzo with a generous grind of pepper and squeeze in the juice of 1/2 [1] lemon

Taste for seasoning, adding more salt if needed – this is your red pepper & saffron orzo

7 Prawn, Red Pepper & Saffron Orzo

Add the chopped parsley to the pan with the cooked prawns and give everything a good mix up – these are your parsley prawns

Cut the remaining lemon into wedges
