Spicy Prawn and Chorizo Potatoes

I have seen this somewhere before, I cant remember where though and therefore I've sort of made this up with some inspiration.

This dish suits any night of the week, the chorizo gives a wonderful level of flavour, the potatoes give it some body and the egg, if runny delights you with  a gorgeous richness to it

4 Medium size potatoes, peeled and cut into cubes, about 1 Inch
1 Packet of supermarket cooked prawns
1 good length of Chorizo, sliced
1 Red onion, finely chopped
1 Garlic Clove finely chopped
100 ml of white wine
1 egg per person
1 Chilli de-seeded and sliced
1/2 tsp Cayenne pepper
1 Handful of fresh parsley chopped

Heat the oven to 200 Degrees
Bring a pan of water to the boil, salt it and add the potato cubes, cook for 5 mins, drain, season and drizzle with Olive oil add the Cayenne and gently toss. Leave to rest for 10 mins, Tip into a roasting tin and place in the oven for 30 mins or until crispy and golden.

Meanwhile, saute the onions and garlic until soft
Put a separate pan of water onto boil for the poached egg

Add the chorizo, turn up the heat , stir until the chorizo starts to release its oil, lower the heat add the chilli and cook simmer gently for 10 mins.

Add the prawns, cook for 2-3 mins, add the wine turn up the heat and cook until wine has evaporated. Then reduce to a simmer until the potatoes are cooked. You may have to turn the heat off whilst the potatoes are cooking.

Add the cooked potatoes to the pan and stir gently so that the potatoes are coated in the sauce

Put the eggs onto poach and cook for 3 mins
Stir the parsely through the prawn, potatoes etc ...
Pile up into a large dish and place the poached egg on top
Drizzle over any remaining oil from the pan

  1. ooh that does look good. Chorizo is one of those things that seems to go with many other ingredients and adds so much flavour. Adding the poached egg is a stroke of genius!!!
