Prawn linguine with chorizo – 9 out of 10

Following on from a rather busy few days, there has not been an updated recipe, but the fact I can still eulogise about how good a meal is 4 days later is testimony that I’d struck gold. This is the last bit of praise I deserve. It was created by a lady called Lorraine Pascale, who I believe is a former model, but if she churns out recipes like this on a regular basis, she’s definitely the cooking world’s gain, and there must not be the pressure in this industry to maintain a perfected appearance 24/7. I didn’t even find the recipe. That accolade goes to my beautiful wife. The only thing I did was cook and eat it, but then maybe when I put together an IKEA cupboard with instructions, I try and seek some credit, so maybe I should revise my earlier statement and seek more credit :). To find the recipe, click on this link and it should take you to the recipe. (Bonus that I don’t have to type it out) The page should look something like the below:

I agree with Lorraine’s verdict apart from one thing, if you can’t get your hands on a chorizo ring, the correct answer is “try harder, you haven’t looked hard enough. Waitrose, Tesco, ASDA, Sainsburys, Morrisons & Co-Op Food and many others all sell them.”

What made this so great was the rich full bodied tomato flavour, including red wine, which is  great excuse to open a bottle :), but with Chilli, Garlic and Chorizo as well it would be a spectacular effort to make it bland, although I have occasionally risen to the challenge. One thing we did, that you might consider is just buying cooked prawns and adding them about 3 minutes before the end. If someone else can cook them for the same price and same taste, don’t waste time. It can be better spent making Nigella’s instant chocolate mousse, which is likely to feature in a future post. (Incidentally Friday’s dessert)

All that remains is to sit back and enjoy, and for Coeliac/Gluten Free diets, use appropriate spaghetti – Heinz GF Pasta is a current favourite.gar

Looking ahead for the blog :)

imageObviously, being a Friday night, I’ve endeavoured to and succeeded in having an amazing meal. ( End of the week, it is a criminal offence to not set out to do this :)) It is our chicken satay, simple and possibly my favourite home recipe. More to follow in time including this mouthwatering treat written down at some point. I have to say I’m buzzing with ideas about this blog. I like that I can write about something I am really passionate about. This has potential to be an exciting journey and I look forward to where it takes me. For any readers, stick around. There will be some v. Tasty recipes and some fun musings on my favourite topic – Yummy Food.
