ReCiPe UpDaTe….Prawn and Chorizo Spanish Stew with Cannellini Beans


After spending over 3 weeks in England for Christmas and New Year, now I am back I really fancied something Spanish.  I bought these HUGE prawns and decided to make this stew.  It has chorizo in for a little smokiness, cannellini beans to fill out the dish, also I added chilli and a sprinkling of coriander for a Mexican twist.

It was delicious, tasty and healthy.  You can eat this with rice, crusty bread, quesadillas or just on its own, but I would definitely serve it with a glass of vino tinto.

Serves 2 


1 onion diced

Chorizo ring sliced

sun-dried tomatoes a handful chopped

1 red chilli chopped finely (remove seeds if you would like it milder)

2 garlic cloves grated

1 flat Tbsp. paprika

2 Tbsp. tomato frito (or paste)

1 tin plum tomatoes

1 small red pepper diced

1 tin 290g cannellini beans

1 tsp brown sugar

1/2 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar

8 extra-large prawns

Handful of fresh coriander chopped

salt & pepper


In a skillet or frying pan dry fry the chorizo until brown, this should give off enough oil for the next stage.

Remove the chorizo with a slotted spoon and set aside for later.  Add the onions to the pan reduce the heat and soften.

Add the sun-dried tomatoes and cook for a few minutes.

Once the flavour is to your liking, place the prawns over the stew.

You can cover this with foil and continue cooking on the hob, I however placed these in a pre-heated oven at 200 degrees; uncovered.

Cook for another 10 minutes ..ish, depending on the size of your prawns,, I turned the prawns over during this time.

Once cooked sprinkle over a little more coriander and drizzle over some extra virgin olive oil!
