Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1

Preheat the oven to 220°C/ 200°C (fan)/ 425°F/ Gas 7

Boil a kettle

Peel the garlic and roughly tear the basil, including the stalks (reserve a couple of leaves for garnish)

Add the garlic, torn basil and a large knob of butter to a food processor and pulse until blitzed but not smooth – this is your basil butter

2

Dissolve 1/2 [1] Knorr vegetable stock cube in 350ml [650ml] boiled water

3

Chop the cherry tomatoes in half

4

Add the orzo, stock and half the basil butter to an oven-proof dish and gently stir it all together

5

Place the chopped tomatoes evenly on top of the orzo, they should sink down under the stock

Season with a generous crack of black pepper

Put the dish in the oven for 18-20 min or until the stock has been absorbed – this is your tomato orzo

6

Whilst the tomato orzo is in the oven, roll the lemon[s] with your hand on a hard surface (to release more juice) and cut in half

7

Once the stock is nearly fully absorbed, heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) over a medium-high heat

Once hot, add the remaining basil butter to the pan and cook for 1 min

Add the king prawns and the juice of half the lemon and cook for 4-5 min or until cooked through – these are your garlicky prawns
