Garlic Prawns and Sausage

Time Preperation:0:20 | Cooking: 0:10
Serves: 2-4

The garlic and paprika flavours with the prawns and sausage are a perfect combination. This is a perfect starter or even a main.


6 good-quality pork or chorizo sausages
olive oil
300g raw peeled king prawns
2 cloves of garlic, peeled and finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
a knob of butter
1 lemon
a small bunch of fresh flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped


Get a large frying pan on a medium heat.

Squeeze the sausages out of their skins bit by bit and roll the meat into little 2cm balls.

Once you've done that with all your sausages, turn the heat up under the pan and add the meatballs to the pan with a little of olive oil.

Shake the pan every now and then, and after 4 or 5 minutes the meatballs should be looking golden brown and cooked all over.

Add your prawns and chopped garlic and sprinkle in your smoked paprika.

Give everything a good shake and within about 2 minutes the prawns will be perfectly cooked, so add a knob of butter and cook for another minute or two, shaking and stirring every 10 seconds or so.

Take the pan off the heat, squeeze in the juice of your lemon, add your chopped parsley and season to taste with a pinch of salt and pepper.

Let everything mix together, and stir around to pick up any flavours from the bottom of the pan. Have a taste and check you're happy with it.

Spoon over the lovely meat and prawns, drizzle over any leftover juices and serve right away. So easy
